Approaches to Understanding Vision Natural tasks Natural scene statistics Anatomy Responses of individual neurons Responses of neural populations Perceptualbehavioral performance Mathematical and computational modeling 26 Behavioral Tasks A B C description objective feedback identification subjective no feedback estimation Different perceptual tasks can be classi ed by picking one attribute from each column 27 2AFC Task interval 1 interval 2 warning response feedback warning Example of an objective identi cation task With feedback If there are just two alternatives then such tasks are often called a discrimination tasks if one of the alternative is uniform in some fashion then such tasks are often called a detection tasks The observer must decide Whether a target pattern is in the first temporal interval or the second temporal interval 28 STIMULI FEEDBACK TONE Igt m D m gt WARNING RESPONSE TONE INTERVAL 5 L0 30 E 2 20 39A E 09 k 3 E 15 Q 9 2 8 08 m m IO N n n 1 9 o 7 I o 0 O I

psychometric function Set of all indistinguishable stimulus pairs Set of all stimulus pairs Transition zone Threshold The logic of measuring discrimination thresholds The measurements are focused on the transition zone between the indistinguishable and the trivially easy to distinguish An objective identi cation task with no feedback The illusion in this example is called the MullerLyer illusion Such illusions have also been studied with descriptive methods the phenomenological approach 31 0 CO I 0 O I Proportion A quotLongerquot 0 1 I 0 J I O I I I I I 6 4 2 0 2 4 LengthA Length B mm point

MullerLyer illusion 33 Comparison patch Example of an objective estimation task with no feedback The gray scale luminance is the same for the two squares in the checkerboard in fact it is exactly the same gray shown at the tails of the arrows One way to estimate the difference in apparent luminance is to adjust the luminance of a comparison patch against a same xed background to match the brightness of the squares in the two regions of the image The luminance of the lighter comparison patch has an apparent luminance more similar to the square in the shadow The difference in the physical luminance of the comparison gives a precise measure of the apparent psychological luminance difference 34 Proportion Correct I I I I I 0 01 02 03 04 05 06 Vernier Offset min of arc A real
