For normally hearing subjects, harmonic complex tones that give "peaky" waveforms on the basilar membrane (Schroeder-positive phase, sine phase or cosine phase) lead to less forward masking than complex tones that give less peaky waveforms (Schroeder-negative phase or random phase), but have the same power spectrum. This difference has been attributed mainly to the combined effects of peripheral compression and suppression, both of which depend on the operation of the active mechanism in the… CONTINUE READING
