When do We Assimilate in Color?
  DOI :  10.2352/CIC.2002.10.1.art00004  Published OnlineJanuary 2002

Color Assimilation is a very obvious effect, in which two identical stimuli appear very different hues. This paper studies the hypothesis that the broad spectral sensitivity functions of human vision are the cause of these spatial effects. The results show that the long-wave response to middle-wave light, and the middle-wave response to long-wave light introduce spatial effects consistent with observed colors.
