It measures the change in the mean response when there is a change between the levels of one factor. for example, in an analysis of three different concentrations of a growth factor on cell growth in cell culture with means against a control value without any growth factor, a contrast would be: the important point is that the coefficients sum to zero (1/1 - 1/3 - 1/3 - 1/3). If the value of the contrast is zero or not significantly different from zero, there is no main effect, i.e., the combined growth factor mean is not different (positive or negative) from the no growth factor mean.
