As for aligning our units with the underlying
neuro-physiological electro-chemical processes...give us a break!
Please take many breaks - I didn't mean anything as overtly
reductionist as the statement above.
I was just looking at the issue that if a variable is constructed as
linear via Rasch scaling, how might we test whether the magnitudes from
this constructed variable can be distinguished from, for example, simple
sum-score magnitudes, in terms of the consequences of using each to
generate measures and predictions in the real world, or in terms of
their observed relations to other theoretically-relevant variables.
