Difference limens for frequency were measured in normal-hearing human and nonhuman-primate (macaque) subjects. Stimuli were 1-kHz pure tones, containing both spectral and temporal cues, and 100-Hz sinusoidally amplitude modulated broadband noise (SAM noise), containing only temporal (nonspectral) cues. Subjects were tested for a minimum of 20 sessions and until difference limens were stable over time for each stimulus at each of several sensation levels. Difference limens for pure-tone stimuli… CONTINUE READING
