Abstract: The psychophysical study of sensory systems has an extensive history. The sensitivity of sensory systems has often been quantified and evaluated in terms of various concepts of threshold. Generally, the threshold is viewed as a point on a continuum of stimulus intensity (or corresponding neural activity) below which detection of the stimulus does not occur and above which detection is possible. Furthermore, the statistical nature of the threshold concept has received renewed interest in the distinction between sensory sensitivity and decision mechanisms(Corso, 1963; Green & Swets,1966; Swets,1964).
