It is becoming well known that it is possible to perceive a difference in phase at the ears by a displacement of the phantom image from the median plane. Attempts, have been made to explain this effect by bone conduction and the effect of intensity, for it is also well known that a difference of intensity will also cause a displacement. But the only published explanation of this character has been shown to be not satisfactory. Yet, since a large group of psychologists believe that sensation depends entirely upon the mode of response of the end organ and not upon the character of the stimulus, it is difficult to secure convincing evidence that the character of the stimulus, i.e., phase, does produce an apparent displacement of the phantom source.
