  1. CS 450 Human Vision 1 Human Vision Some properties of human vision that affect image perception: • Linear and non-linear parts • Nonlinear (approx. logarithmic) encoding of input • Adaptation • Relative-contrast encoding • Varying sensitivity to spatial frequecies • Generally treats brightness and color separately
  2. CS 450 Human Vision 2 Discrimination Experiments Many vision experiments involve comparisons. “Two alternative, forced choice” experiments: • is it there? (yes/no) • which is brighter, farther apart, etc. (top/bottom, left/right, etc.) Random guessing without bias: 50% correct Pick some percentage above which the the observer must get it right: often 75% (half the time they “see it”, half the time they guess). Vary the experimental parameter to determine the threshold T above which the observer reaches this desired level of confidence. This is called the just noticable difference (j.n.d.). Sensitivity: 1/T
  3. CS 450 Human Vision 3 Weber’s Law Many visual properties obey Weber’s Law. For intensity discrimination: ∆I =c I for some constant c. In other words, the j.n.d. ∆I for intensity is proportional to the intensity itself. Also applies to distance judgements, spatial frequency discrimination, and many others.
  4. CS 450 Human Vision 4 Weber’s Law and Logarithmic Encoding ¡ I+∆I ¢ log(I + ∆I) − log I = log I = log (1 + c) = constant Differences of logarithmic encoding produces Weber’s Law. The human intensity sensitivity function isn’t exactly logarithmic, but it’s close enough to be a useful model.
  5. CS 450 Human Vision 5 Adaptation Our eyes have an incredible ability to adapt to lighting conditions. Total j.n.d. steps for the eye is about 1000. Total j.n.d. steps for fixed adaptation is about 200.
  6. CS 450 Human Vision 6 Contrast Encoding The response of the eye to light isn’t absolute—it’s relative to the surrounding intensities. This causes the Mach effect at strong intensity transitions. Even our color perception seems to be based on relative differences (to a point). Intensity: measurable light Brightness: the perceived illumination
  7. CS 450 Human Vision 7 Spatial Frequencies Stimulus: sinusoidal grating of some frequency f and amplitude A. Vary A in a 2AFC and find the j.n.d. for each frequency f . Plot the sensitivity as a function of frequency f : the contrast sensitivity function (CSF). Implications: • The eye is less sensitive to extremely gradual changes • The eye is fairly sensitive to more rapid changes • The eye is decreasingly sensitive to yet higher spatial frequencies
  8. CS 450 Human Vision 8 Color Perception Rods: • brightness only • peripheral vision • low lighting conditions (scotopic) Cones: • color • central vision (fovea) • bright lighting conditions (photopic) Three types of color pigments: • “Green” (most sensitive) • “Red” (almost as sensitive) • “Blue” (weak)
  9. CS 450 Human Vision 9 Brightness vs. Color The human visual system seems to treat brightness and color separately. Physically separate pathways in the visual cortex (brain). Some crossover, but weak. Perception of shape and form seems to be based on brightness, not color. Much more sensitive to changes in brightness than to changes in color.
  10. CS 450 Human Vision 10 Displays When building visual displays you have to consider properties of vision: • Exponential encoding for perceptual linearization • Be careful of Mach effects • Consider adaptation • Make it bright! • Consider the human CSF • Be careful with color
