To answer this question, other methods have to be applied (see Chapters 3 and 4), but obviously response behavior is sensitive to the variation of numerical parameters. At this point, we wish to mention that comparisons with BAR - HILLEL's data, 1980 (cf. , the Motor problem, may elicit considerably different response patterns.
