  1. Psychophysical Scaling: A Conditional Defense of R=F(I).Adam Reeves - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (3):605-606.
    Psychophysical scales can be constructed under suitable restrictions from appropriate data, but they still do not justify privileged internal sensations.

  • Weight and Mass as Psychophysical Attributes.Helen E. Ross - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (3):606-607.
    In terms of physics, mass is the fixed attribute of an object while weight varies with the accelerative force. Neither weight nor mass are simple sensory stimuli as both involve the integration of sensory and motor information with higher cognitive processes. Studies of apparent heaviness yield only vague information about sensorimotor mechanisms.

  • Arguments in Favour of a Psycho-Psychophysics.Friedrich Müller - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (3):602-604.
    In contrast to Lockhead's view it is argued that psychology as a genuine science must not be based on other sciences and that psychological measurements have to be validated inside psychology. It is pointed out that psychological scalings, unaffected by judgment contexts, can be obtained if the experimental setting is compatible with everyday situations.

  • Processing Attributes and Judging Objects.Dominic W. Massaro - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (3):601-602.
    Given that psychophysical responses are not a function of a single property but vary with a variety of stimulus and context variables, Lockhead has little hope for laws relating behavior to the environment. However, progress can be made with tasks that manipulate multiple sources of information to test formal information-processing models.

  • Bias by Stimuli Presented Before the Start of an Investigation.E. C. Poulton - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (3):604-605.
    In his target article Lockhead calls attention to numerous complications that prevent a valid straightforward or Fechnerian interpretation of psychophysical data. Here I describe three additional sources of bias, all involving the influence of stimuli presented before the start of an investigation.

  • Psychophysical Scaling Methods Reveal and Measure Context Effects.Gregory R. Lockhead - 1995 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 18 (3):607-612.
    People cannot make independent judgements of stimulus attributes and so (Lockhead 1992, p. 551) rather than in terms of stimulus features. The new commentaries here further this statement and also support the observations in the target article that psychophysical scaling methods allow us to measure (1) how context determines judgments and (2) what people remember about prior stimuli.
