Abstract

We determined the functional relationship between chromatic induction and luminance of the inducing stimulus for different spatial conditions and assessed whether the effects of luminance and spatial variables could be explained in terms of the total effective energy in the inducing field. The result showed that the relationship between chromatic induction and luminance of the inducing stimulus could be mathematically expressed by an exponential function of the luminance ratio between the test and inducing stimuli and that the coefficient of the exponent was independent of spatial variables, i.e., area and separation. This led to the conclusion that a luminance ratio between two fields, rather than a quantum energy of the inducing field, was a relevant determinant of the effect of luminance of the inducing stimulus on chromatic induction.
