Only maskers that produce energy in the 2-kHz region will be effective in elevating signal threshold. To account for phenomena such as these, psychoacousticians assume that the auditory system can impose a filter on the incoming signal (Green, 1976). In the example given, an auditory filter or critical band centered on 2 kHz would explain why maskers with spectral compositions remote from 2 kHz would be ineffective. On the other hand, when the distribution of energy in the noise 24 DEVELOPMENTAL CHANGE IN AUDITORY SENSITIVITY overlaps that of the critical band, the masker should affect the detection of the signal.

The extent of these changes is indicated in Figure 16. What is responsible for this 12-to-13-dB shift in threshold from 6 months of age to adulthood? One explanation that readily comes to mind is motivational and/or attentional. We have shown that one model of inattention can account for about 1 dB of this difference. In this model, it was assumed that the infant was inattentive on about 14% of the trials and that these inattentive trials were scattered randomly throughout the session. Even if we assume that inattention is increased to about 20-25% of the trials, it is easy to show that this has a relatively inconsequential effect on the group psychometric functions derived from a 2AFCL experiment.

1989). The relations between such electrophysiological changes and behavioral thresholds are difficult to establish, but changes of this nature nevertheless indicate that adultlike states of neural processing may not develop until late childhood. If this is the case, then developmental changes in absolute and masked thresholds, which also continue until late childhood, may arise from maturational changes in the auditory pathways. Conclusions Over the past 15 years, two different varieties of visual reinforcement audiometry (go/no-go detection, and two-alternative, forced-choice localization) have been 42 DEVELOPMENTAL CHANGE IN AUDITORY SENSITIVITY used to measure auditory sensitivity in infants.
