Listeners judged the dissimilarity of pairs of synthesized nasal voices that varied on 3 dimensions. Separate nonmetric multidimensional scaling (MDS) solutions were calculated for each listener and the group. Similar 3-dimensional solutions were derived for the group and each of the listeners, with the group MDS solution accounting for 83% of the total(More)

OBJECTIVE We examined preferences for different forms of causal explanations for indeterminate situations. Background: Klein and Hoffman distinguished several forms of causal explanations for indeterminate, complex situations: single-cause explanations, lists of causes, and explanations that interrelate several causes.

In 14 of these patients the only MR abnormality was the presence of multiple parenchymal high-signal foci on T2-weighted images. Nine of the 14 had clinical evidence of multiple sclerosis; the remaining five had no(More)
