This dissertation investigates discrimination between pure tones. Three questions were investigated: can listeners integrate frequency and duration information in the discrimination of pure tones; how does the discriminability of duration-frequency compounds relate to the discriminability of the changes in the individual dimensions; and how is the integration of these two dimensions affected by the parameters of the stimuli in which the changes in duration and frequency are introduced.
