Interaural time and intensity disparities (ITD and IID) are the two cues to sound lateralization. "Time-only" hypothesis claims that an IID is first converted to an interaural afferent delay (Delta t), and is then processed by the central ITD mechanism, rendering a separate IID processor unnecessary. We tested this hypothesis by assessing the contribution of the cochlear latency effect to the psychophysical ITD/IID trading ratio. Auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) were used to measure the… CONTINUE READING
