Linear model observers based on statistical decision theory have been used successfully to predict human visual detection of aperiodic signals in a variety of noisy backgrounds. However, some models have included nonlinearities such as a transducer or nonlinear decision rules to handle intrinsic uncertainty. In addition, masking models used to predict human… CONTINUE READING
