In the present study, 10 subjects heard a sequence of diotic tonal stimuli. Each stimulus lasted 1.5 sec. and increased, decreased, or remained steady in intensity; initial intensity was 40 dB SPL and carrier frequency was 1 kHz. Subjects made forced binary responses of "growing louder" or "growing softer" to each… CONTINUE READING
