Stevens' power law links the magnitude of a physical stimulus to its perceived internal intensity via a psychophysical power function. Because of the law's sensitivity to the procedure used to collect its data, its failure to manifest itself at the individual level, its manifestation in non-sensory modalities, and the difficulty associated with rating stimuli on a ratio scale, many have speculated that the power law is a product of the experimental procedure Stevens used. This work tested this… CONTINUE READING
