Summary

Here several important color perception phenomena are presented that argue for substantial additional processing beyond what has been described in the previous chapter. These include lightness, the Helmholtz-Kohlrausch effect, lightness and chromatic crispening effects, hue and chroma, stimulus mixture, simultaneous and successive contrast, adaptation, color constancy and metamerism, spreading and edge effects, volume colors and metallic colors.
