Ratio scaling of psychological magnitude : in honor of the memory of S.S. Stevens by Stanley J Bolanowski( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 297 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

Design and Implementation of the Tactor Array Controller Tool( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basically, the project was a one time contract to design and build a specific piece of equipment to show feasibility of a system that would improve situational awareness for pilots and other Navy personnel whose sensory systems are overtaxed or receiving conflicting information. The primary interest in developing such a device for the Navy is to aid in decreasing the number of aircraft and pilots lost during warfare and while flying under conditions that corrupt situational awareness. Our portion of the project involved hardware and software design of a device to interface between the output of a gyroscope and the input to a tactor array. The tactor array consisted of tactors that are mounted on a body suit which the pilot wears. The gyroscopic information is fed into the controller which uses a lookup table, programmable via Labview software and located in read only memory (ROM), to map orientation of the gyroscope to particular patterns of vibration in the tactor array. The device has was designed and built and sent to the Naval Air Medical Research Laboratory in Pensacola, FL, and was to be used in a test flight sometime in the middle of August, 1995
Computational studies on rapidly-adapting mechanoreceptive fibers by Burak Guclu( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A firing-rate-based population response model for monkey rapidly-adapting (RA) mechanoreceptive fibers was used to find the probability of activity in the population as a function of various stimulus parameters. However, this rate-based model does not include rate variance and cannot directly predict psychophysical thresholds. Therefore, a time-dependent model was established. The responses of cat RA fibers were modeled using a Markov process and Laplace distribution of action-potential phases with respect to the stimulus. The population model based on the Markov process was used to obtain the 40-Hz thresholds of the Non-Pacinian I (NP I) psychophysical channel as a function of the stimulus-contactor location. Different receptive-field distributions and rate-based decision criteria were also studied. Predictions of the population model are close to the human psychophysical results. The experiments show that the NP I thresholds remain approximately constant across the terminal phalanx of the finger, suggesting that the receptive-field distribution may be uniform as opposed to the findings in the literature. Thus, this is in contradiction with the increase of the innervation density towards the distal end of the phalanx which would be expected to produce lower thresholds. It was also found that the mechanical properties of the skin vary across the fingertip as found by impedance measurements. Therefore, it is concluded that the mechanical attenuation function used in the model should be modified in such a way that the effects of the innervation density and skin mechanics cancel out
