Re: Effect of duration on noise discrimination

Title: Re: Effect of duration on noise discrimination
For a review of research on effects of cycle duration on the ability to detect repetition of a noise waveform, see

Kaernbach, C. (2004). Auditory sensory memory and short-term memory. In C. Kaernbach, E. Schröger, & H. Müller (Eds.), Psychophysics beyond sensation: Laws and invariants of human cognition (pp. 331-348). Mahwah, NJ: Erlbaum.


Dear list,

Can anyone point me to additional references regarding duration dependencies in noise discrimination? So far I've found the following papers containing such duration dependencies:

Hanna, Thomas E.
"Discrimination of reproducible noise as a function of bandwidth and duration"
Perception and Psychophysics, 1984, 36 (5), p. 409-416

Heller, Laurie M and Trahiotis, Constantine
"The discrimination of samples of noise in monotic, diotic, and dichotic conditions"
Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, 1995, 97 (6), p. 3775-3781

Fallon, Suzan M.
"Discriminability of bursts of reproducible noise"
Dissertation  - Indiana University, 1998

All publications with noiselike stimuli, and especially Gaussian noise, that measured discrimination ability as a function of time are very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance and kind regards,

Tom Goossens
