The main area of research continues to be spectral shape discrimination, what I have called profile analysis. Three areas continue to receive considerable attention. They are 1 the cues available for detecting spectral changes as a function of the bandwidth of the stimulus, 2 how the number of components or density of the spectrum affects the ability to hear spectral changes, and 3 temporal effects--how duration of the stimulus appears to interact with other variables to influence the listeners ability to hear spectral changes. In the first two areas, we have used Bergs COSS analysis to great advantage, and we anticipate that we shall continue to utilize that procedure in our research.
