Differential changes in perceived contrast following contrast adaptation in humans

Hietanen, Markus; Cloherty, Shaun; Clifford, Colin W.G.; Ibbotson, Michael


Perceived contrast is reduced after prolonged exposure to a textured pattern (contrast adaptation). The size of this effect is dependent on the relationship between the adapting contrast and the test contrast. It is generally accepted that the greatest reductions occur when the adapting contrast is much higher than the test contrast. Here this relationship was examined for a wide range of spatial frequencies. The results show that the effect of the adapt/test ratio on perceived contrast...[Show more]
