Step 1: Thresholding
Determining the auditory thresholds of a pilot sample
The voice amplitudes are calibrated for the PC on which participants are tested. For this, the auditory thresholds of a pilot sample are determined. Unzip and open the folder “Auditory Threshold Task” and run the file “AuditoryThreshold.ebs2” to start the threshold programme.
To edit the programme, use the file “AuditoryThreshold.es2”:
Threshold data can be found in E-Data files (with icons as shown below) as generated by the programme:
Open an E-Data file and locate the column named “Stimvol” (see Table 1):
Locating threshold data
The last value of this column (i.e. Stimvol; Table 1) is the auditory threshold of the participant tested. In the example, it is -5900.
