Abstract:

The auditory flutter fusion frequency of 18 Ss was determined at intervals of 0, 12, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 days of visual deprivation darkness. Relative to control Ss, a progressive improvement in performance as a function of duration was observed, a functional relationship which was best represented by a fourth-order polynomial. These results were similar to those obtained in an earlier experiment in which a tactual fusion task was employed, a measure analogous to auditory flutter fusion. Author
