Figure 5. Percent error in serial recall as a function of the difference in frequency (in semitones) between alternating pure tones in the irrelevant sound. The point of inflection in the function corresponds roughly to the point at which the two-tone sequence partitions into two sequences, one of high and the other of low pitch. (Redrawn from Jones, Alford, Bridges, Tremblay & Macken, 1999).
