Munker illusion

since April 1, 2005

The chromatic White effect is the Munker illusion.

Munker, H. (1970) Farbige Gitter, Abbildung auf der Netzhaut und übertragungstheoretische Beschreibung der Farbwahrnehmung. Habilitationsschrift, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, München.

(Munker, H. (1970) Chromatic grids, projection to the retina, and translation theory-based description of the color perception. Habilitation thesis, Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich.)

It seems that Munker did not discuss the role of T junctions.
