However, as Scheler [20] showed, the population distribution of the intrinsic excitability or gain of a neuron is a heavy tail distributionmore precisely a lognormal shape, which is equivalent to a logarithmic coding scheme.

This is called the distance effect.

The constant k is sense-specific and must be determined depending on the sense and type of stimuli. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Ley de Weber-Fechner by Samantha Vazquez on Prezi

Light, electromagnetic radiation that can be detected by the human eye. Thank you for your feedback. Gustav FechnerGerman physicist and philosopher who was dr key figure in the founding of psychophysics, the science concerned with quantitative relations between sensations and the stimuli producing them. Weber’s law — or Weber Fechner law In psychophysics, a historically important law quantifying the perception of change in a given stimulus.

Thank You for Your Contribution! To others, the law meant the possibility of a scientific, quantitative psychology. Election after election, voters demand more public goods to be effectively impressed; therefore, politicians try to increase vechner magnitude of this “signal” of competence — the size and composition of public expenditures — in order to collect more votes.


This publication was the first work ever in this field, and where Fechner coined the term psychophysics to describe the interdisciplinary study of how humans perceive physical magnitudes. Look at other dictionaries: History of the Behavioral Sciences.

Translated by Adler, H E. Weber’s law and Weberized TV total variation restoration”. This page was last edited on 22 Octoberat Elements dee psychophysics [ Elemente der Psychophysik ].

Weber’s law does not quite hold for loudness.

Journal of the Optical Society of America A. Discover some of the most interesting and trending topics of Weber disambiguation — Weber is a surname. Continuing to use this site, you agree with this.

The first demonstration of the phenomena was u by Riesz inin Physical Review. Weber undertook studies of the sense of touch that are important to both psychology and sensory physiology. For example, if a stimulus is tripled in strength i. This logarithmic relationship means that if a stimulus varies as a geometric progression i.

Weber–Fechner law

fecuner Fechner formulated several versions of the law, all stating the same thing. Dose response can be related to the Hill equationwhich is closer to a power law. Although Weber’s law includes a statement of the proportionality of a perceived change to initial stimuli, Weber only refers to this as a rule of thumb regarding human perception.


fevhner The law states that the change in a stimulus that will be just noticeable is a constant ratio of the original stimulus.

Weber found that the just noticeable difference JND between two weights was approximately proportional to the weights. Once the confusions were cleared away that confounded duration with extension, succession with simultaneity, and quality with quantity, he maintained that the….

Weber-Fechner law

Weber on the tactile senses. This is the smallest change in stimuli that can be perceived. Activation of neurons by sensory stimuli in many parts of the brain is by a proportional law: Fechner also developed experimental procedures for measuring sensations in relation to the physical magnitude of stimuli.

Retrieved 5 December As stated above, the JND is proportional to the initial stimuli. It may also play a role in explaining why consumers neglect to shop around to save a small percentage on a large purchase, but will shop around to save a large percentage on a small purchase which represents a much smaller absolute dollar amount. United States of America: Weber and Fechner conducted research on differences in light intensity and the perceived difference in weight.

Their study consisted of intensity discrimination in pure tones.
