Some methods have been used more frequently than others: for example, absolute threshold shifts (Table 1), perhaps because they are more straightforward to apply than some of the other methods.
Most definitions refer to exceedances above absolute thresholds such as 90[degrees], 95[degrees], 100[degrees], or 105[degrees]F or exceedances above relative thresholds such as 95th, 97th, 98th, or 99th percentiles.
Following this, a baseline absolute threshold measure of scotopic sensitivity is determined.
The absolute threshold reflected the number of stimuli that had preceded the first "different" response.
DGP produced with various absolute threshold glare source identifiers consistently produced higher [sub.
Aggregated absolute threshold schemes suggest that a food satisfies some minimum standard of overall nutritional value, such that it contributes to a healthy diet.
There's an absolute threshold requirement for 3PL ability to keep the customer informed of all handoffs on inventory,' he says.
In studies of gustation, masking has mainly been explored using detection tasks: a masking effect often occurs when the presence of an additional taste interferes with the detection or perception of a target stimulus presented near the lower absolute threshold.
Provided that the absolute threshold is low compared with that of the noise level, Equation 6 indicates that masked (squared) CDT is proportional to the power of effective noise transmitted by the filter involved in detection (as required by the third assumption above).
