Figure 1: Effect of noise, at several levels, on feigned hearing thresholds (and, for Experiment 3, genuine thresholds) from 3 experiments with ON subjects; errors bars show ± 1 SD for illustrative conditions. Model predictions for 1 kHz are also shown in panel (A) these are based on the model of partial loudness by Moore et al. (1997), using finer resolution (0.5-dB step) than in the experiments (5-dB steps)
