I am running a mixed model effect on two different dependent variables. Both variables cosist of continuous, real numbers with no missing data. However, I get two different degrees of freedom depending on which dependent variable I use in my analysis. Since they both contain the same number of responses, I don't understand how this is happening. Any insight? IIt also looks like there are only 5 responses shown plotted for the dependent variable Prop, while d' displays all 6 data points. Attached is a subsset of my data which displays the same errors.

I should specify that it is actually the DFDen that is changing.

I assume that you are using the default REML procedure and its default options to fit this model. As such, the degrees of freedom for the denominator are adjusted and the adjustment depends on the response variable and parameter estimates.
