The two experiments reported here are concerned with detectability as a function of interaural intensity differences. The experiments investigate masking in the N sub O, S sub m and N sub u, S sub m conditions and are concerned with a model of binaural interaction recently proposed by Jeffress. Other models are also suggested and are considered in order to account for the processes of binaural interaction. The second investigation reported here represents the first set of data collected in the newly-expanded psychophysical laboratories at TRACOR, Inc., and demonstrates the facility with which large amounts of data may be collected in a relatively short period of time. With this capability, detectability as a function of interaural intensity differences is being examined at other interaural noise correlations in the testing of models of binaural interaction.
