Relations of the Absolute Threshold to the Interaural Time Interval between two Clicks
The effects of different interaural time intervals (0 to 300 ms) were studied by measuring the threshold improvement of two clicks, one on the right ear and the other on the left ear, relatively to the monaural threshold of each click separately, and by asking the subjects to localize the apparent sound source at each time interval. The first click was given sometimes to the right ear and at other times to the left ear. Five audiologically normal subjects served in these experiments. The threshold improvement decreases as the interaural time interval increases, but reinforcement appears for some interaural time differences. The time intervals at which the localization of the apparent sound source changes and those at which the threshold varies significantly, are about the same. The variations of the threshold appear similar whichever ear was first stimulated.
