This study examined whether increasing the similarity between informational maskers and signals would increase the amount of masking obtained in a nonspeech pattern identification task. The signals were contiguous sequences of pure-tone bursts arranged in six narrow-band spectro-temporal patterns. The informational maskers were sequences of multitone bursts played synchronously with the signal tones. The listener's task was to identify the patterns in a 1-interval 6-alternative forced-choice… CONTINUE READING
