The relative importance of contrast and assimilation for determining the perceived brightness was estimated. Assimilation decreased when a test spot had such a binocular disparity that the spot and its background appeared on different depth planes respectively. However, contrast was not affected by the binocular depth cue. These results indicate that the cortex takes an important role in assimilation process.
