This experiment was designed to measure the shape and asymmetry of the auditory filter over a wider dynamic range than has been measured previously. Thresholds were measured for 2-kHz sinusoidal signals in the presence of two 800-Hz-wide noise bands, one above and one below the signal frequency. The spectrum level of the noise was 45 dB (re: 20 muPa), and the noise bands were placed both symmetrically and asymmetrically about the signal frequency. The deviation of the signal frequency from the… CONTINUE READING
