I want the black edge color for the boundaries of each pixel drawn using imagesc. If I use pcolor, I get the black boundary around pixels. How can I get the same using 'imagesc'?

You can't. And if you use pcolor, you don't either. The tiles you see in pcolor are NOT pixels. Look closely. If you want to show a 4x4 array with pcolor, do you see a 4x4 array of pixels?
m = magic(4)
pcolor(m);
No, you don't. Those black lines goes through the MIDDLE of the pixels, they don't surround them. And to make it worse, you see a 3x3 array of tiles, not a 4x4 array. Very deceiving so that's why I never use pcolor().

The function pixelgrid superimposes a grid of pixel edges on an image. The purpose is to easily visualize pixel extents when zooming in closely on an image. The grid is drawing using lines with contrasting colors so that it is visible regardless of the colors of the underlying pixels.
