An experiment was conducted to study the interaction of the extrapolation mechanism with the effect of frequency proximity. The stimuli consisted of two sinusoidal glides with logarithmically changing frequency. Results show that when two gliding tones cross each other, they can create a crossing percept, as well as the bouncing percept. This effect could be observed when the glide durations were as short as 100 ms. The frequency changes of the glides were traced when they did not change in opposite directions, and a crossing perception could be elicited.
