1976). Cooper and colleagues observed that after listening to repetitions of a particular consonant–vowel stimulus, the probability that subjects would report hearing this same stimulus in subsequent perceptual testing was reduced.

We found no perceptual shift in nonadapted subjects who repeatedly said or heard a given test stimulus. Moreover, control subjects also repeated and listened to the same set of utterances but did not show a reliable perceptual change.
