Chapter Summary

This chapter describes criterion setting theory (CST), and then extends the theory to provide an account of contextual effects on discrimination, sensory discrimination learning, and anisotropies. Predictions are derived and tested in experiments on visual orientation discrimination and, to examine whether the theory provides an account of anisotropies in general, on ocular vergence and binocular disparity. Where Fixed Memory Trace Theory (FMTT) offers alternative predictions, these are also examined in the chapter. The chapter also describes two criterion setting processes, defined by different sources of information that may update the criterion over trials. To extend CST to provide a theory of discrimination learning (CST-DL) the author adds four assumptions. CST-DL distinguishes between types of decision criteria and provides an account of anisotropies and context effects affecting discrimination. Predictions from this model are tested in experiments on anisotropies in orientation and depth perception.

Keywords:anisotropy; criterion setting theory (CST); Fixed Memory Trace Theory (FMTT); sensory discrimination learning
