In 3 experiments, the authors tested performance in simple tone matching and classification tasks. Each tone was defined on location and frequency dimensions. In the first 2 experiments, participants completed a same-different matching task on the basis of one of these dimensions while attempting to ignore irrelevant variation in the other dimension. In Experiment 3, in which the tones were classified either by frequency or location, the authors explored intertrial repetition effects. The patterns of performance across these different tasks were remarkably similar and were taken to reveal basic characteristics of stimulus encoding processes. The data suggest a processing sequence in audition that reveals an early stage in which location and frequency are treated as being integral and a latter stage in which location and frequency are separable.
