A parsimonious model of brightness induction
We present a parsimonious model of brightness induction which can account for various brightness illusions of both brightness-contrast and brightness-assimilation types. Our model is based on a difference of difference-of-Gaussian filter and a two-pass model of attentive vision based on the parallel channels in the central visual pathway. It overcomes some of the problems that could not be addressed by the well-known oriented difference of Gaussian model like those associated with Mach band and checkerboard illusions. This model attempts to provide insight to the mechanism of attention in brightness perception through the two major complimentary visual channels, viz. the magnocellular and the parvocellular.
