Abstract

There exist large interindividual differences in the amount of chromatic induction [Vis. Res. 49, 2261 (2009) [CrossRef]  ]. One possible reason for these differences between subjects could be differences in subjects’ eye movements. In experiment 1, subjects either had to look exclusively at the background or at the adjustable disk while they set the disk to a neutral gray as their eye position was being recorded. We found a significant difference in the amount of induction between the two viewing conditions. In a second experiment, subjects were freely looking at the display. We found no correlation between subjects’ eye movements and the amount of induction. We conclude that eye movements only play a role under artificial (forced looking) viewing conditions and that eye movements do not seem to play a large role for chromatic induction under natural viewing conditions.
