Sistema de Gustav Theodore Fechner by Claudia Soto on Prezi

As stated above, the JND is proportional to the initial stimuli. This is called the distance effect. Weber’s law does not hold at perception of higher intensities. Subsequent research has revealed that the equation is applicable within the middle range of stimulus intensity and then is only approximately true. Retrieved 5 December Fechner also developed experimental procedures for measuring sensations in relation to the physical magnitude of stimuli.

Law of comparative judgment — The law of comparative judgment was conceived by L. Contact our editors with your feedback.

Weber–Fechner law

He introduced the concept of the just noticeable difference between two similar stimuli. German physicist and psychologist. The first demonstration of the phenomena was presented by Riesz inin Physical Review. Thank You for Your Contribution! Weber’s law does not quite hold for loudness. This is the smallest change in stimuli that can be perceived. Mark and share Search through all dictionaries Translate… Search Internet.


University of Pittsburgh Press. It was Fechner who formulated this statement as a mathematical expression referred to as Weber contrast. German anatomist and physiologist. If the stimulus is again tripled in strength i. By stating a relationship between the spiritual and physical worlds, the law indicated to Fechner that there is really only one world, the spiritual.

For example, the ability to perceive differences in light intensity could be related to how good that individual’s vision is. Your contribution may be further edited by our staff, and its publication is subject to our final approval. Election after election, voters demand more public goods to be effectively impressed; therefore, politicians try to increase the magnitude of this “signal” of competence — the size and composition of public expenditures — in order to collect more votes.

In modern day terminology, it is more aptly described as a model that is used to obtain measurements from any process of pairwise fehcner. If you prefer to suggest your own revision of the article, you can go to edit mode requires login.

Weber-Fechner law — noun psychophysics the concept that the magnitude of a subjective sensation increases proportional to the logarithm of the stimulus intensity; based on frchner work by E. Weber found that the just noticeable difference JND between two weights was approximately proportional to the weights.


Other discrimination tasks, such as detecting changes in brightness, or in tone height pure tone frequencyor in the length of a line shown on a screen, may have different Weber fractions, but they all obey Weber’s law in that observed values need to change by at least some small but constant proportion of the current value to ensure human observers will reliably be able to detect that change. Weber contrast is not part of Weber’s law. The Weber—Fechner law refers to two related laws in the field of psychophysicsknown as Weber’s law and Fechner’s law.

The eye senses brightness approximately logarithmically over a moderate range but more like a power law over a wider range[ citation needed ] and stellar magnitude is measured on a logarithmic scale.

Weber’s law

Although Weber’s law includes a statement of the proportionality of a perceived change to initial stimuli, Weber d refers to this as a rule of thumb regarding human perception. Gustav FechnerGerman physicist and philosopher who was a key figure in the founding of psychophysics, the science concerned with quantitative relations between sensations and the stimuli producing them.

Fechnr particular he formulated an equation to express Weber’s theory of the just noticeable difference. To others, the law meant the possibility of a scientific, quantitative psychology.
