Threshold for First- and Second-order Movement with Age

Share:

Description

These data were reported by Thibault et al (2007) (their Figure 4) and provide developmental data on the contrast modulation threshold for detection of a moving stimulus for two kinds of motion, called First-order (or luminance based) and Second-order (contrast based).

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 112 observations on the following 5 variables.

Subject

a factor with levels S01,S02, ..., S70 coding the id of each observer

LnAge

a numeric vector giving the natural log of age in months

Mtype

a factor with levels FO SO coding the type of stimulus, first-order or second-order

Sex

a factor with levels f m indicating the sex of the observer

LnThresh

a numeric vector giving the natural log of the percent contrast modulation threshold

Details

The data were collected using preferential-looking techniques. Percent contrast varies between 0 and 100.
