    Abstract

    A follow-up experiment to those conducted by Brown and Yost [(2011). J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 130, 358-364; (2013). Basic Aspects of Hearing: Physiology and Perception (Springer, London, UK)] examined interaural time difference (ITD) discrimination for a low-frequency target noise band flanked by monotic noise bands that were either lower-frequency than the target band, higher-frequency, or both. The flanking bands were either spectrally contiguous with the target band or spectrally separated. Significant interference in ITD processing occurred in the presence of the high-frequency flanking band. Results are discussed by way of a comparison of the conditions in the present study to those in studies of binaural interference. The possible role of attention is also discussed.
