Abstract

The relationship between interaural correlation discrimination and binaural detection was investigated using common experimental procedures and common subjects. Psychometric functions were obtained for four normal-hearing subjects at 500 and 4000 Hz using third-octave noise signals for the correlation discrimination experiment, and pure-tone signals and third-octave noise maskers for the detection experiment. Results from these two measurements, which were compared by expressing the signal-to-noise ratio as an equivalent change in interaural correlation, support the idea that interaural correlation discrimination and binaural detection are closely related. Since large intersubject differences in binaural performance were observed in these experiments, interaural-time, interaural-intensity, and monaural-intensity discrimination were measured in a second experiment. The results of the second experiment show large intersubject differences for the interaural tasks, but not for the monaural task.
