This paper reports two experiments concerning the stimulus specificity of pitch discrimination learning. In experiment 1, listeners were initially trained, during ten sessions (about 11,000 trials), to discriminate a monaural pure tone of 3000 Hz from ipsilateral pure tones with slightly different frequencies. The resulting perceptual learning (improvement in discrimination thresholds) appeared to be frequency-specific since, in subsequent sessions, new learning was observed when the 3000-Hz… CONTINUE READING
