In order to clarify this point, Morais and Bertelson (1975) tested subjects with stereophonic presentations of two simultaneous messages using only time differences between stimulation of the two ears by the same message.

Table 2 shows the difference between the number of intrusions from the right-side message in the left-side message and the number of intrusions from the left-side message in the right-side message, averaged over the 32 subjects for each of the four conditions. This difference was significant on a one-tailed t test in the condition R 90-F 90, and non-significant in the other three conditions.

For half the subjects, the first and the fourth block (as the fifth and the eight) were presented with real loudspeakers at 90” and the second and the third block (as the sixth and the seventh) with real loudspeakers at 45” ; the reverse order was used for the other half.
