Age-Related Changes in Auditory Temporal Perception.
Morrongiello, Barbara; Trehub, Sandra E.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v44 n3 p413-26 Dec 1987
Evaluates the discrimination of signal and silence duration in six-month-old infants, children aged 5 1/2 years, and adults. Results show that infants discriminated duration changes of 20 milliseconds or greater, children discriminated 15 milliseconds, and adults as few as 10 ms. Findings are consistent with other research in revealing age-related improvement in auditory temporal perception. (RWB)
