Frequency and intensity DLs were measured in 26 human infants (ages 7-9 months) and six young adults using a repeating standard "yes-no" operant headturning technique and an adaptive staircase (tracking) psychophysical procedure. Subjects were visually reinforced for responding to frequency increments, frequency decrements, intensity increments, or intensity decrements in an ongoing train of 1.0-kHz tone bursts, and stimulus control was monitored using randomly interleaved probe and catch… CONTINUE READING
