Dislocation of Tones in a Musical Sequence: a Memory Illusion
Department of Psychology, University of California, San Diego, PO Box 109, La Jolla, California 92037.
COMPUTER-GENERATED tonal sequences have several advantages for investigations of immediate memory: the stimulus parameters are simple and can be exactly controlled, and the items cannot be readily rehearsed. Previous studies of memory for pitch have investigated the effect on the differential threshold of blank intervals between the standard and comparison tones1–3 and of one interpolated tone4,5.
