Abstract: Plateau’s irradiation phenomenon in particular describes what one sees when observing a brighter object on a darker background and a physically congruent darker object on a brighter background: the brighter object is seen as being larger. This phenomenon occurs in many optical visual illusions and it involves some fundamental aspects of human vision. We present a general geometrical model of human visual sensation and perception, hereby taking into account the law of Fechner in addition to the anisotropic smoothing that was introduced in [1], and explicitly illustrate its meaning for irradiation illusions of Helmholtz and Kitaoka.
