Defines the relationship between sound intensity and subjects' accuracies in localizing a sound source on the median plane. For white-noise intensities greater than 40 dB SL, localization accuracy decreases with decreasing sound level. It is hypothesised that this decrease in accuracy occurs because the direction-dependent spectral cues encoded by the outer ear are obscured by auditory system noise
