A previous study reported no difference in reaction time to the offset of brief bursts of noise as a function of stimulus duration. However, in that study a fixed foreperiod preceded stimulus onset, and the stimulus duration remained constant within blocks of trials. In the present study it was found that when foreperiods and durations are selected randomly from trial to trial, reaction time does vary significantly as a function of stimulus duration.
