Normal-hearing (N:20) and sensorineural adults (N:15) performed sweep-frequency Bekesy audiometry from .1-8 kc/s at threshold and at MCL and UCL with both continuous (C) and interrupted (I) tones. Excursion width was measured in 1-db steps. Normals exhibited no C-I differences in excursion width at any level, and differences between the two groups of Ss were negligible for I tones, but the sensorineural Ss yielded significantly smaller widths at 3, 4 and 6 kc/s for C tones at both… CONTINUE READING
