Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Masking-level differences (MLDs) of substantial magnitudes were found in forward and backward masking situations. Their magnitude diminishes exponentially as the silent interval between signal and masker increases. Implications of the data for current models relating to the MLD are suggested.
