Thirty-two listeners participated in experiments involving five filtered noises when listeners kept their eyes open or closed, for stimuli of short or long duration, and for stimuli that were presented at random locations or in a largely rotational procession. Individual differences in the proportion of front-back reversals (FBRs) were measured. There were strong positive correlations between the proportion of FBRs for any one filtered noise, but not when FBRs were compared across different filtered-noise conditions. The results suggest that, for each individual listener, the rate of FBRs is stable for any one filtered noise, but not across filtered noises.
