Formby and Forrest [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 89, 830--837 (1991)] measured temporal gap detection (TGD) thresholds as function of frequency separation between two sinusoids marking a silent temporal gap. Their results were fit well with a roex-filter model. Filter estimates (1) were based on TGD thresholds for post-gap marker frequencies F[sub 2]> pre-gap marker frequencies F[sub 1] and (2) assumed symmetry of the roex-filter function for F[sub 2]F[sub 1] were typically shallower than those fitted for conditions of F[sub 2]
