Abstract Research using behavioural methods to study the development of frequency perception is reviewed. Four aspects of frequency perception are considered: sensitivity, discrimination, masking, and critical bandwidths. Implications for clinical practice and possible underlying mechanisms mediating developmental changes in performance are discussed.
