Stochastic resonance (SR) is a statistical phenomenon recently studied in a wide range of non linear physical systems. According to SR, there exists an optimal noise level for which the information content of weak sub- threshold signals can be detected. This study investigated SR in the human visual system in terms of subjective capacity to recognise patterns under optimal noise conditions to establish the possibilities of fMRI techniques in making results objective.
