Research on Lightness Perception and Lightness Illusions by Edward H. Adelson of MIT

Edward H. Adelson is a Professor of Vision Science at MIT. His lab focuses on topics in human and machine vision, including mid-level vision, material perception, image statistics, and motion analysis. Some of his findings on how the mind plays tricks are astonishing and can be seen as Flash animations.

These concepts are particularly interesting because a better understanding of how the human mind and vision are wired together can lead to many industrial and product design applications.
