Don't you think you can use any kind of sound, unless it is too loud or too stimulative, as a "neutral" sound after presenting it repeatedly to your subject ? Of course, it depends on what kind of physiological response you are going to get. Generally speaking, however, things or events presented frequently tend to be more or less neutral at least psychologically. Yoshitaka Nakajima
