Dear List A reviewer of a recent paper of ours has written the following: "...I thought it was well established that 10 to 30% of normal subjects cannot judge which frequency [in a pair of pure tones] is higher or lower (above chance), while all subjects are generally able to judge if two frequencies are identical or not." My question: is this, in fact, well established, as the reviewer claims, and if so, what might be the reference for this? Any leads you all can give us would be appreciated Thanks Robert Robert J.
