The capacity to estimate the orientation of an object with respect to gravity was investigated by having Ss rotate a tactile-kinesthetically (tk) perceived bar (under exclusion of all visual cues) to the subjective horizontal. The 1st experiment was conducted to compare tk judgements with the...
A comparison was made between monaural and binaural temporal integration of noise bursts at threshold. The data indicate partial integration, with approximately a 6 dB decrease in threshold per decade increase in noise burst duration for both conditions of stimulation (i.e., parallel functions)...
The results of two experiments are reported in which the change over time in the perceived depth location of a monocular, luminous test object with respect to two binocular luminous stimuli located at different distances was measured. It was found that: 1) The test object receded perceptually in...
