It can not signal the wavelength of the quanta. • All quanta, regardless of wavelength, cause the same voltage change when they are absorbed • 700 microvolts per quantum for rods • 25 microvolts per quantum for cones Friday, 6 September 2013 52 What Can We Do with Psychometric Functions? • Answer questions about sensory processes • What is the minimum amount of energy needed for “seeing?” • Hecht, Shlaer, & Pirenne (1942) Friday, 6 September 2013 53 Psychometric Function Simon S hlaer D ata 1.0 Probability of “yes” Probability of “yes” Selig H echt D ata 0.8 0.6 0.4 0.2 0.0 1.0 0.8 0.6 0.4 0.2 0.0 10 100 1000 10 Mean Number of Quanta at Cornea 100 1000 Mean Number of Quanta at Cornea 1.0 Probability of “yes” Probability of “yes” Maurice H enri P irenne D ata 1.0 0.8 0.6 0.4 0.2 0.0 0.6 0.4 0.2 0.0 10 100 1000 Mean Number of Quanta at Cornea Friday, 6 September 2013 0.8 10 100 1000 Mean Number of Quanta at Cornea 54 Poisson Probability Distribution −λ λe p( n : λ) = n! n λ > 0, n = 0,1, 2, 3… Mean = µ = λ Variance = σ = λ 2 Standard Deviation = σ = Friday, 6 September 2013 λ 55 Poisson Process Poisson Process (mean = 2.0) Number of Quanta per Flash 5 4 3 2 1 0 1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21 Trial Friday, 6 September 2013 56 Poisson Process (mean = 2.0) 8 Number of Quanta per Flash 500 Trials 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0 0 100 200 300 400 500 Trial Friday, 6 September 2013 57 Observed Probabilities Poisson Process (mean = 2.0) 0.30 500 Trials 0.25 Probability 0.20 0.15 0.10 0.05 0.00 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Number of Quanta per Flash Friday, 6 September 2013 58 Theoretical Poisson Distribution Poisson Distribution (mean = 2.0) 0.30 λn e− λ p( n : λ) = n! 0.25 Probability 0.20 0.15 0.10 0.05 0.00 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Number of Quanta per Fl...
