Dips in an audiogram are not uncommon; but the difference observed pointed to an uncommonly sharp change of sensitivity. Further tests revealed other equally sharp fluctuations in this observer's audiogram. Eventually a systematic exploration of the right-ear thresholds of this and one other observer was… CONTINUE READING
