Keegan notices that his favourite 99-cent candy bar seems lighter than usual and so he checks the label and finds that it is lighter by 15 grams. He decides to buy a larger candy bar instead and doesn’t notice that the $1.49 candy bar also is lighter by 15 grams. Keegan’s behaviour illustrates the fact that:
a.The larger a weight is, the greater the change must be before one can detect a difference.
b.The just noticeable difference is not a reliable measure of psychophysiological judgment.
c.JNDs are unpredictable, because sometimes Keegan can and sometimes he can’t detect a 15-gram change.
d.Sensory adaptation may occur in the short time between holding one candy bar and then the other.

Use your imagination to provide an example of a real-world application of signal-detection theory.
The textbook illustrated the production of negative afterimages by suggesting that readers stare at the centre of a green heart, edged in yellow. After 20 seconds, when the gaze was switched to a white paper, there was a “change of heart!” What colours did you “see” in the image of the heart on the white paper? How does opponent-process theory explain this finding?
Because of classical conditioning, medical treatment can create unexpected misery or relief from symptoms for reasons that are entirely unrelated to the treatment itself. Give an example that illustrates this statement.
Harry and Sally want their daughter to begin using her utensils correctly at the dinner table. But they can’t reinforce her appropriate behaviour because she doesn’t ever use her fork and knife appropriately! What conditioning procedures would be useful in this situation? Briefly describe how Harry and Sally might behave in order to reinforce their goal in this example.
