chromatic induction

modification of the visual response that occurs when 2 colour stimuli (of any spectral irradiance distribution) are viewed side-by-side in which each stimulus alters the appearance of the other

NOTE 1 It is often referred to as simultaneous or spatial contrast because the effect is one of enhancement of colour difference.

NOTE 2 The effect is virtually instantaneous, in contrast to chromatic adaptation which is considered to develop slowly in the visual system.
