Abstract

ABSTRACT

When a low-intensity stimulus A is alternated in time with a high-intensity stimulus 6 of relatively short duration, stimulus A is heard as continuous. This “continuity” effect is shown to occur even when the B stimulus is a series of sharp pulses at one rate and the A stimulus is a series of pulses at another rate which must produce a very different neural temporal pattern. Simple substitution models of the continuity effect are thus shown to be inadequate. A model is presented to make various types of continuity effects more understandable.
