The acuity of azimuth and elevation discrimination was measured under conditions in which the cues to localisation provided by the pinnae were removed. Four subjects localised a sound source (white noise through a speaker) which varied in position over a range of elevations (-40 degrees to +40 degrees) and azimuths (0 degree to 180 degrees), at 10 degrees intervals, on the left side of the head. Pinna cues were removed by the insertion of individually cast moulds in both pinnae. Each mould had… CONTINUE READING
