Abstract:

The first experiments to measure head movements while subjects are localizing sounds they can hear and see and sounds they can only hear have been completed, and the results of these experiments were presented at the June meeting of the Acoustical Society of America Yost and Mapes-Riordan, 1997. We have developed a new methodology for investigating precedence-like effects Stellmack, Dye, and Guzman, 1998. We studied the role of maskng tin the precedence effect Guzman and Yost, in press. We also have collaborated on a major review of the precedence effect Litovsky et al. in press in which attempt to establish a nomenclature and organizing theory for the many effects that are collectively referred as the precedence effect.
