1 Near Miss to Weber’s Law IK I Δ= Weber’s Law () 0 II + Fechner’s generalization of Weber’s Law 0.9 0 + “Near miss” to Weber’s Law Intensity discrimination in the auditory system is described approximately by Weber’s law. The generalized Weber’s law holds for noise bursts. The near miss to Weber’s law holds for pure tones.
