Detection and identification thresholds for grating targets were measured in the presence of a compound mask grating as a function of the stimulus onset asynchrony (SOA). The detection and identification SOA functions are both reversed U-shaped but they are not parallel. The detection-to-identification ratio is itself a reversed U-shaped function of SOA, even for stimuli two octaves apart, with a peak between + 20 and + 60 ms SOA (backward masking). It is argued that these results support the hypothesis according to which detection and identification are serial processes.
