Contrast sensitivity is routinely measured with sine wave grating stimuli presented on homogenous grey backgrounds, whereas natural images are composed of a broad range of spatial and temporal structure. I examine how contrast sensitivity varies with the context in which it is measured in an effort to extend our band-pass channel-based models of visual processing for application in natural conditions.
