Grant reviewing and writing

The AVA Committee has published two documents which we believe will be helpful to the vision science community:

How to review a grant

Bootstrap thresholds

Given a set of binomial responses at different stimulus levels, this program fits a psychometric function and derives a threshold and slope. It then estimates the standard deviation and confidence intervals of the threshold and slope by a bootstrap procedure. Another program compares thresholds and slopes from two sets of data and estimates confidence intervals to test the significance of their differences. For an introduction to the software, see Foster & Bischof (1997) Spat. Vis., 11, 135-139.

The programs are available in a variety of downloading formats here, and are also mirrored on the AVA anonymous ftp site at:
