Blinda och seende individers tröskel för vanlig tonhöjd, repetition pitch och ljudstyrka. (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

The perceived pitch and loudness of sounds change as they fuse with reflections from nearby objects. Blind people use both sources of information, with dominance for the use of pitch. We studied if their better performance as compared to sighted can be related to the ability to discriminate tone frequency, repetition pitch and loudness. Only loudness discrimination differed between blind and sighted persons.
