The method of constant stimuli is inefficient  (1990)
Abstract Header
Simpson has argued that the method of constant-stimuli is as efficient as adaptive methods of threshold estimation, and has supported this claim with simulation. We show that Simpson's simulation are not a reasonable model of the experimental process and that more plausible simulations confirm that adaptive methods are much more efficient than the method of constant-stimuli.
