Psychophysiological substrates of schedule interactions and behavioral contrastSociobiological variations on a Mendelian theme; A "psychological" proof that certain Markov semigroups preserve differentiability; Axiomatic measurement theory; Optimal decision rules for some common psychophysical paradigms; Mathematical models of binocular vision; Reaction time distributions predicted by serial self-terminating models of memory search
Summary Mathematical Psychology and Psychophysiology promotes an understanding of the mind and its neural substrates by applying interdisciplinary approaches to issues concerning behavior and the brain. The contributions present model from many disciplines that share common, conceptual, functional, or mechanistic substrates and summarize recent models and data from neural networks, mathematical genetics, psychoacoustics, olfactory coding, visual perception, measurement, psychophysics, cognitive development, and other areas. The contributors to Mathematical Psychology and Psychophysiolog
