In this example, the absolute threshold is the lowestamount of volume that they can detect up to 50% of the time (Grison, Heatherton, &Gazzaniga, 2017).1.Absolute Threshold- My absolute threshold is very delicate, I can not smell smallamounts of fragrance in large rooms because they are usually not strong enough for me tosmell.
