The present study evaluates the relation between loudness and simple reaction time (RT). Loudness matches between a narrowband noise (125 Hz wide) and a broadband noise (1500 Hz) were made at levels from near threshold to near 100 dB SPL. Over a similarly wide range of levels, RT to each of the noise bands was also measured. As reported often in previous loudness-matching studies, loudness summation depended strongly on level. With increasing SPL, the level difference between the noises needed… CONTINUE READING
