I am happy to admit that the process underlying identification and discrimination may be regarded as esentially identical; however, the tasks are distinct and provide different information. MacMillan and Creelman's categorical perception studies provide a good example in their contrastive use of identification vs. discrimination performance to locate boundaries between categories. Re: Matlab scripts for ROC analyses Since it looks like a may get a few requests for these, I will prepare a webpage with some documentation. When this is complete, I will post to AUDITORY again to inform those interested. In the meantime, let me recommend that those interested in C programs download the UNIX|STAT software (719k) from: -> UNIX|STAT 5.1 (available also for MS-DOS) "UNIX|STAT is a set of UNIX data manipulation and analysis programs developed at the University of California, San Diego and at the Wang Institute of Graduate Studies by Garl Perlman. The programs are designed with the UNIX philosophy that individual programs should be designed as tools that do one task well and produce output suitable for input via pipes to other programs. Interactive use is supported in the UNIX shell which also provides a programming language for complex analyses." -- William L.
