A comparison was made between monaural and binaural temporal integration of noise bursts at threshold. The data indicate partial integration, with approximately a 6 dB decrease in threshold per decade increase in noise burst duration for both conditions of stimulation (i.e., parallel functions) for durations ranging from 4 to 256 msec. When thresholds in dB are plotted as a function of log duration, the linear component accounts for 99% of the data indicating no essential change in the partial integration functions up to at least 256 msec. The intercept difference between the monaural and binaural integration functions is 2.5 dB.
