Estimation of stimulus-response curves by bayesian least squares
Bayesian least squares techniques are adapted to estimation of stimulus-response curves, rather broadly conceived. Illustrative examples deal with estimation of person characteristic curves and item characteristic curves in the context of mental testing, and estimation of a stimulus-response curve using data from a psychophysical experiment.
