& d; v" o5 Y( b! @0 QDetection Theory is an introduction to one of the most important tools for analysis of data where choices must be made and performance is not perfect. Originally developed for evaluation of electronic detection, detection theory was adopted by psychologists as a way to understand sensory decision mak-ing, then embraced by students of human memory. It has since been utilized in areas as diverse as animal behavior and X-ray diagnosis.3 I9 c6 w- V" d5 |% z# [

This up-to-date summary of signal detection theory is both a self-contained reference work for users and a readable text for graduate students and other researchers learning the material either in courses or on their own.

For the last many years I have been suggesting Macmillan and Creelman to those who ask me for a reference to detection theory. It is an excellent book and has proved useful to a wide variety of behavioral scientists who need detection theory as a tool. I am delighted to have this new edition to recommend, an edition which includes material that should make it of use to still more investigators. The new information about multidimensional signal-detection theory allows analysis of more complex experimental designs and, even more importantly from my perspective, analysis of situations where there are multiple detectors, or channels, or pathways.5 B5 Y!
