Psychophysics and analysis

Show Summary Details

Preview

Many psychophysical, behavioral, and analytic procedures are used in the study of depth perception. The chapter starts an outline of psychophysics and a discussion of the types of judgment that are used in experiments on depth perception. This is followed by an account of procedures used in the analysis of data, including Fourier analysis, control theory, time series, and geometry. Only a general review of these procedures is provided but references are provided where more detailed treatments may be found.

Keywords: psychophysics; linear systems; nonlinear systems; geometries
