Generalized linear models are a general class of regressionlike models for continuous and categorical response variables. Signal detection models can be formulated as a subclass of generalized linear models, and the result is a rich class of signal detection models based on different underlying distributions. An example is a signal detection model based on the extreme value distribution. The extreme value model is shown to yield unit slope receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curves forâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
