SIGNAL DETECTION THEORY:Detecting something is not necessarily simple. Your senses may perceive a stimulus, but that doesn’t mean that you’re paying attention to it.Sensitivity and bias:Imagine you are expecting a text or phone call. They have not called yet but you go and check on your phone multiple times to see if they have called you. In fact, sometimes the stimulus is there and you miss it, and sometimesit’s not there and you think you hear or see it. This is the signal detection theory according with Scientist.
