IID of the pointer (in decibels) required to match the intracranial position of the target as a function of its IID. Positive values of IID favored the left ear and negative values favored the right ear. The filled squares in the top, middle, and bottom panels represent the IID of the 500-Hz-centered noise pointer required to make a match when the 4-kHz-centered target stimulus was a SAM tone, a raised-sine, or a Gaussian band of noise, respectively. Each inset depicts an exemplar of the corresponding 4-kHz-centered stimulus. The filled circles in each panel represent the IID required to make a match when the target was the 500-Hz-centered noise and pointer was one of the afore-mentioned 4-kHz-centered stimuli. Error bars represent ±1 standard error of the mean. Unfilled circles represent predictions made with the regression lines calculated using the data represented by the filled squares but with the x and y axes “interchanged” (see text).

The purpose of this communication is to report the results of a study indicating that a given magnitude of interaural intensitive disparity (IID) produced a larger extent of laterality, as measured via an acoustic pointer, for stimuli centered at 4 kHz than for stimuli centered at 500 Hz. The data and their analysis, taken together, suggest that the findings reflect true across-frequency differences rather than being manifestations of response-related factors.
