Relationship between psychophysical tuning curves and "suppression".

Abstract

This study examined two-tone unmasking and auditory frequency selectivity about 3 kHz for the purpose of demonstrating a qualitative relationship between the two. An adaptive 2IFC forward-masking procedure was used to collect psychophysical tuning curves (PTC's) and two-tone masking data under a quiet and noise condition for the same normal-hearing… (More)
