    Abstract

    The visibility of stationary phantoms was measured by human observers in two experiments. The phantom visibility declined with the increase of the mean luminance of black/white inducing gratings, falling near to zero at a mean luminance high above 80 cd/m2. The phantoms also disappeared when the red/green inducing gratings were subjectively equiluminant. The implications of these results are discussed in relation to the grating induction effect and to the functional correlations with the magnocellular system's activity.
