Prolonged listening to unidirectional change of sound level in a tone can cause a steady tone afterwards to change in apparent loudness in the opposite direction. Subjectively the present aftereffect appears strong immediately after removal of the adaptor, becoming much weaker within a second or so. To confirm this, the aftereffect was measured by nulling with different durations of test stimulus changing steadily in sound level. As predicted, rate of change of sound level was greater for the… CONTINUE READING
