At the level of the auditory cortex, musicians discriminate pitch changes more accurately than nonmusicians. However, it is not agreed upon how sound familiarity and musical expertise interact in the formation of pitch-change discrimination skills, that is, whether musicians possess musical pitch discrimination abilities that are generally more accurate(More)
The role of attention in conjoining features of an object has been a topic of much debate. Studies using the mismatch negativity (MMN), an index of detecting acoustic deviance, suggested that the conjunctions of auditory features are preattentively represented in the brain. These studies, however, used sequentially presented sounds and thus are not directly(More)
The perceived trajectory length of the movement of a fused auditory image (FAI) against the background of interaural intensity differences was estimated in eight subjects upon dichotic stimulation through headphones. FAI movement was created by gradually changing the interaural delay (ΔT) between clicks in binaurally presented series of clicks from 0 to(More)
