The rate of processing pure-tone stimuli was measured in 10 elderly subjects and 10 young controls using an auditory backward recognition-masking paradigm. Experimental trials consisted of the presentation of either a 770- or 870-Hz target stimulus (TS) followed by an 820-Hz masking stimulus (MS), separated by a variable silent intertone interval (ITI). For both groups, the mean percent correct recognition scores for TS identification improved systematically with increases in ITIs, reaching an… CONTINUE READING
