      Stimulus selection. For probing the modeled psychophysical functions by SRPs, stimulus amplitudes, x, were selected according to an adaptive probing procedure 1 described in (Doll et al., ).The procedure started with a predefined set of 5 equidistant stimulus amplitudes between 0 and mA, from which new stimulus amplitudes were randomly by: Psychophysical methods are psychological investigative techniques that study the relations of stimuli to the sensations and perceptions that they produce. For example, psychophysical methods could be utilized by investigators to establish the relations between the physical intensity of a light and its perceived brightness.

Psychophysics quantitatively investigates the relationship between physical stimuli and the sensations and perceptions they produce. Psychophysics has been described as "the scientific study of the relation between stimulus and sensation" or, more completely, as "the analysis of perceptual processes by studying the effect on a subject's experience or behaviour of systematically varying the.

The coverage of the field is comprehensive, including topics ranging from the classical methods of threshold measurement, to the modern methods of detection theory, to psychophysical scaling of sensation magnitude.

The approach is one in which methods, theories, and applications are described for each experimental procedure.

This book presents the basic concepts of classical psychophysics, derived from Gustav Fechner, as seen from the perspective of modern measurement theory. The theoretical discussion is elucidated with examples and numerous problems, and solutions to one-quarter of the problems are provided in the text.

The difference is that psychophysical stimuli admit physical measurement, from which accuracy of assessment can be calculated, while examination scripts do not. Psychophysical relates to the relationship between one's internal (psychic) and external (physical) worlds. Psychophysical may refer to.
