Question details

SAQ 1. Touch Detection Analysis: Analysis of success rate for very light touch detection.  Copy in all properly formatted calculations from your Table 1 and comment on your results. 

Part A. Please report your calculations of 'Average % YES' for 'real' and 'fake' touches for each area of both volunteers. Your calculations should be reported to ONE digit after the decimal place (e.g., 15.5%). (0.5 marks)

REAL TOUCH SUBJECT 1:         

fingertip: 86.7%

ventral forearm: 53.3%

lower back: 66.7%

FAKE TOUCH SUBJECT 1:

fingertip: 20.0%

ventral forearm: 46.7%

lower back: 73.3%

 

REAL TOUCH SUBJECT 2:

fingertip: 86.7%

ventral forearm: 66.7%

lower back: 46.7%

FAKE TOUCH SUBJECT 2:

Fingertip: 20.0%

ventral arm: 33.3%

lower back: 66.7%

QUESTION: Part B. Summarise your data and comment on how your average rates of success for 'real' touches differed between areas and between volunteers. Comment also on which areas of the body had the highest rate of false detections (i.e., most YES for 'fake' touches) - what psychological factors may have contributed? (0.75 marks)
