    It's incredibly unlikely that it would appear on the Praxis. The phenomenon is just an example of binaural cues to pitch. Two stimuli that would otherwise be perceived as noise when presented monaurally are perceived as having a recognizable pitch when presented dichotically.

    This (the first Google result for "Huggins pitch) explains it well.
