simultaneous contrastmedical dictionary

The enhancement of the visual sensation of white when a white object is viewed adjacent to a black object; the black object also appears blacker as a result of the contiguity of white. Adjacent complementary colours also appear brighter; e.g., green appears a brighter green and red a brighter red if these two colours are viewed side by side.
