Melody recognition 
The recognition of 10 different 16-note melodies, constructed using either dichotic pitch stimuli or dichotic pure-tone stimuli, was measured. The dichotic pitches were created by placing a frequency-dependent transition in the interaural phase of a noise burst. Three different configurations for the transition were used in order to give Huggins pitch, binaural-edge pitch, and binaural-coherence-edge pitch. Forty-nine inexperienced listeners participated. The melodies evoked by the dichotic stimuli were consistently identified well in the first block of trials, indicating that the sensation of dichotic pitch was relatively immediate and did not require prolonged listening experience. There were only small improvements across blocks of trials. The mean scores were 97% (pure tones), 93% (Huggins pitch), 89% (binaural-edge pitch), and 77% (binaural-coherence-edge pitch). All pair wise differences were statistically significant, indicating that Huggins pitch was the most salient of the dichotic pitches and binaural-coherence-edge pitch was weakest. To account for these differences in salience, a simulation of lateral inhibition was applied to the recovered spectrum generated by the modified equalization cancellation model.
