A form of auditory "enhancement" can be demonstrated by omitting a component from a harmonic series for a few hundred milliseconds and then replacing it: the replaced component stands out perceptually. Psychophysical experiments have shown that components generate more forward masking when enhanced than when present but not enhanced. This result has been interpreted as demonstrating that enhancement involves an increase in gain in the frequency region of the replaced component. The present… CONTINUE READING
