Psychophysics : the fundamentals by George A Gescheider( Book )

24 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This third edition of a classic text which was first published in 1976 is the only comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of psychophysics currently available. It has been used by undergraduate and graduate students, and scholars throughout the world and is consistently thought of as the best single source for learning the basic principles of psychophysics. 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 wh
Ratio scaling of psychological magnitude : in honor of the memory of S.S. Stevens by Stanley J Bolanowski( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presenting the proceedings of a conference held at Syracuse University in honor of S.S. Stevens, a pioneer in the scaling of sensory magnitudes and the originator of the method of magnitude estimation, this volume brings together the work of 20 authorities on the procedures of ratio scaling. These experts--psychophysicists, physiologists, and theoreticians--offer their views on whether or not psychological magnitudes can be measured and whether the judgments of psychological magnitudes constitute the basis for the construction of a ratio scale. Also discussed is the question of whether any sin
