[alpha,beta,thresh92] = FitWeibAlphTAFC(inputs,nCorrect,nError,alpha0,beta0)

Maximum likelihood fit of a Weibull function to psychometric data,
search only on alpha with fixed beta as passed.

Requires the optimization toolbox.


inputs: contains the input levels
nCorrect: contains the number of yes responses at
the corresponding input inputs
nError: contains the number of no responses at
the corresponding input inputs
alpha0: Initial guess for alpha, empty for default [1].
beta0: Value for beta


alpha Weibull alpha parameter
beta Weibull beta parameter
thresh92 92% percent correct threshold
