Difference information in brightness perception

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Contour information generated by moving retinal images has been shown by others to be the principal determinant of perceived color. The data presented here show that, for brightness, this information reflects only differences between adjacent stimulus areas. The entire distribution of difference information from contours in the visual field must be specified in order to predict the brightness at any point. © 1971 Psychonomic Society, Inc.
