Visual induction occurs where one visual stimulus affects the perception of another adjacent stimulus. A number of effects have been identified:

  • Brightness effects. So for example Mach bands may be perceived.
  • Colour effects. The colour of one stimulus may be seen differently when placed against alternative objects of other colours. See color contrast.
  • Size effects. The perceived size of an object may be altered by placing it in proximity to alternative objects.
