Masking Effects, Homolateral and Contralateral, Total and Partial, on a Pure Tone, by Two Other Pure Tones, Placed on the Two Sides of the First Tone
Two simultaneous masking tones on the two sides respectively of the masked one have been used, either homolaterally or contralaterally; in the present experiments, the masked thresholds have been measured, the partially masked tones have been compared to a reference one of the same frequency and the reaction times have been registered. In all cases, the masking effects, both total and partial, are clearly greater than the effect of one of the masking tones alone, and greater also than the effect which could be obtained by doubling of one of them; moreover, the complete return to total loudness is more rapid.
