Plack, Christopher J. and Carcagno, Samuele and Oxenham, Andrew J. (2007) A further test of the linearity of temporal summation in forward masking. Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 122. pp. 1880-1883.Full text not available from this repository.
An experiment tested the hypothesis that the masking effects of two nonoverlapping forward maskers are summed linearly over time. First, the levels of individual noise maskers required to mask a brief 4-kHz signal presented at 10-, 20-, 30-, or 40-dB sensation level SL were found. The hypothesis predicts that a combination of the first masker presented at the level required to mask the 10-dB SL signal and the second masker presented at the level required to mask the 20-dB SL signal, should produce the same amount of masking as the converse situation i.e., the first masker presented at the level required to mask the 20-dB SL signal and the second masker presented at the level required to mask the 10-dB SL signal, and similarly for the 30- and 40-dB SL signals. The results were consistent with the predictions.
