The effect of increasing the level of a low frequency masker on higher frequency probes can be observed in three paradigms: psychophysically (termed Upward Spread of Masking or USM), mechanically on the basilar membrane (Basilar Membrane Two Tone Suppression or BM-2TS) as well as neuro-physiologically at the auditory neurons (Neural Two Tone Suppression or Neural-2TS). This paper reviews various experimental USM, Neural-2TS and BM-2TS data with the aim of shedding light into the underlying physiological mechanisms in the cochlea.
