This prediction is called the square root law, or Rose-De Vries law, for thresholds. The square root law is obeyed with dim fields (low I) and all varieties of test flash, and with brighter fields and very brief and tiny test flashes (Bouman, 1961, p. 385). Thus, Bouman concluded that photon noise does control increment thresholds at all levels of light. g. Stiles, 1949). This fact has been taken to argue strongly against the classic argument for control of thresholds by photon noise (Massof, 1987), because if the square root law is true, it is predicted to be true for all stimuli, not just some.
