Effects of Signal and Masker Uncertainty on Children's Detection.
Allen, Prudence; Wightman, Frederic
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n2 p503-11 Apr 1995
This paper presents results of 2 experiments examining effects of signal and masker uncertainty on 17 preschoolers' and 13 adults' detection of tonal signals in noise maskers. Effects of masker uncertainty significantly exceeded those of signal uncertainty. For most adults and some children, distracters produced higher thresholds and shallower psychometric function slopes.
