        I'm working out d' and therefore I'd like to aggregate two variables at once (hits and false alarms). In the raw data frame is subject, stimulus_presence, and response information. I aggregate this into a table now currently by separating out the target_presence=true data and working out a hit rate and then workout out the false alarm rate from the target_presence=false data. Then I cbind the "x" column from the false alarm aggregate to the hit rate data. Then I can also append a dprime column if I wish. I am just inquiring as to whether there is some facility I am missing for aggregating the variables simultaneously or just generating the d' in one step.
