Masking by harmonic complexes in birds: behavioral thresholds and cochlear responses

Dooling, R. J. ; Dent, M. L. ; Leek, M. R. ; Gleich, Otto


Thresholds for pure tones embedded in harmonic complexes were measured behaviorally and physiologically for three species of birds, and physiologically in gerbils. The harmonic maskers were generated using the Schroeder-phase algorithm, characterized by monotonically increasing or decreasing phase across frequency. Previous work has shown that these stimuli produce large differences in masking in ...
