Abstract : Partial hearing loss was simulated by insertion of V51-R plastic ear plugs. Subjects wore plugs continuously for periods ranging from six hours to three days. Predictable shifts in localization errors were observed when the stimulus was a broad-band noise made up of frequencies above 3000 cycles per second. Reorientation in azimuth localization with ear plugs inserted required three days or more unless accelerated by specific training. (Author)
