Abstract : During the last granting period, we continued to make substantial progress consistent with the objectives outlined in our last proposal. Our efforts resulted in 17 published papers and book chapters. In addition to our empirical investigations, we updated the hardware and software necessary to conduct experiments employing complex, digitally-generated stimuli. Our experiments concerned (1) listeners' use of "off-frequency" information in the detection of tones in noise; (2) how spectrally remote information can affect the processing of interaural temporal disparities (lTDs) within a "target" spectral region as measured in detection and true lateralization paradigms; (3) listeners sensitivities to short-lived ITDs presented within longer duration bands of noise; (4) the degree to which listeners can ignore information in one ear while processing information in the other.
