Re: AUDITORY Digest - 27 Jan 2007 to 29 Jan 2007 (#2007-21)

Dear Noam and list,

Paul Thomas Young used a "pseudophone" for experiments on binaural hearing, when he was working with Hornbostel, Wertheimer and Lewin at Berlin during the 1920ies ("Berlin School of Gestaltpsychology"). Young writes that he took the term "pseudophone" from Silvanus P. Thomson (1879; 1882).

Young, Paul Thomas (1928):
Auditory localization with acoustical transposition of the ears.
Journal of Experimental Psychology 11 (6), 399-429.

2. question on localization with "horns" (3)

Subject: question on localization with "horns"

Dear list

I remember once reading about an old (19th century?)
study where "horns" inserted into the ears were used
to improve auditory spatial localization in humans, as
a result of the artificially increased distance
between the ears.

I now tried to look for this reference, but failed to
find it.

Does anybody out there know what i am talking about? Any pointers would be great
