Infant Thresholds with Enhanced Attention to the Signal in Visual Reinforcement Audiometry.
Primus, Michael A.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v31 n3 p480-84 Sep 1988
A standard operant procedure, Visual Reinforcement Audiometry, was modified to enhance 16 infants' attention to impending auditory signals. The modified technique achieved an average 5.5 dB improvement in threshold over the conventional technique. Correction for adult performance in similar tasks indicated a 3.3 dB attentional effect between infant and adult thresholds. (Author/JDD)
