Classical conditioning of respiration was used to obtain psychometric functions for pulsed tone level discrimination in the goldfish (Carassius auratus). Conditioned respiratory suppression is a graded response that has some properties of a confidence rating measure. These properties were used to obtain receiver operating characteristics (ROC) and psychometric functions using a blocked method of constant stimuli. Empirical ROCs and neurometric functions were also obtained for single auditory… CONTINUE READING
