Dear John, There is a CD of perceptual grouping phenomena that we made in our lab. It is available from the MIT Press: Bregman, A. S., and Ahad, P.A. (1996). Demonstrations of Auditory Scene Analysis: the Perceptual Organization of Sound. Cambridge, MA.: The MIT Press. (CD and explanatory booklet). - You can look this up on the website of the MIT Press. There is also a demonstration CD of basic psychoacoustic phenomena put out by the Acoustical Society of America. I think you can find it in their website. If not, email me and I'll get the title for you. Best of luck, - Al ------------------------------------------------- Albert S.
