Tactile thresholds for detecting a 50-ms signal presented 25 ms after the termination of a masking stimulus increased as a function of the amplitude level and duration of the masking stimulus. The effects were similar in both the P and NP I channels measured at 250 and 20 Hz, respectively. It was concluded that the increased masking caused by increasing the duration of the masking stimulus resulted from processes other than or in addition to temporal integration--the latter being a… CONTINUE READING
