Band-limiting experiments were performed at three noise spectrum levels (N0 = 25, 40, and 55 dB SPL) for forward, simultaneous, and backward masking. Threshold for a 2-kHz sinusoid decreased for masker bandwidths greater than a "critical bandwidth" in nonsimultaneous masking. These results are evidence for a suppression effect not observed in simultaneous masking; however, a qualitative model of suppression can account for the results in all three types of masking. In addition, the data for… CONTINUE READING
