    Hearing Experiment 1
  • Script generates 7 distinct periodic sequences of clicks, each with a different repetition rate f0 (2 to 128 Hz).
  • Sequences are played multiple times (70 sequences total) in random order. Responses by the user (discrete or continuous) are recorded.
  • Script calculates the boundry frequency at which the user has a 50% probability of hearing the clicks as continuous.
  • Hearing Experiment 2
  • An irregular click sequence is produced by using ICIs drawn from a uniform distribution centered at a mean ICI.
  • Experiment has user determine if a click sequence sounds “aperiodic” or “periodic”.
  • Obtains psychometric functions for the conditions: ICI = 10ms; 25ms; 100ms.
