The integration of the continuous glide pattern resembles the mental synthesis of B's in figure 1. 14. They are both effortless and automatic. Again you could see the auditory effect as an example of the Gestalt principle of closure. However another way of looking at it may be more profitable. Richard Warren has interpreted it as resulting from an auditory mechanism that compensates for masking. to He has shown that the illusion can be obtained only when the interrupting noise would have masked the signal if it had really been there.

The notion of stream segregation serves to link a number of causes with a number of effects. Chapter 2, for example, will show how stream segregation is affected by the speed of the sequence, the frequency separation of sounds, the pitch separation of sounds, the spatial location of the sounds, and many other factors. In turn, the perceptual organization into separate streams influences a number of measurable effects, such as the ability to decide on the order of events, the tendency to hear rhythmic patterns within each segregated stream, and the inability to judge the order of events that are in different streams.

T 3 This interpretation is supported by the results of experi­ ments that show that the segregation becomes stronger with longer repetitions of the cycle of tones. Presumably the detector for change has become habituated in the same manner as other feature detectors are thought to. This view of the stream segregation phenomenon sees it as a breakdown. This seems to be in serious conflict with the scene-analysis view presented earlier, in which stream segregation was seen as an accomplishment. So which is it to be, breakdown or accomplishment?
