    The brain tends to associate specific features of stimuli across sensory modalities. The pitch of a sound is for example associated with spatial elevation such that higher-pitched sounds are felt as being 'up' in space and lower-pitched sounds as being 'down.' Here we investigated whether...

    Visual feature extraction has been investigated using search experiments. Targets that contain a feature not present in the distractors are easier to detect than if they do not, leading to search asymmetries. If sounds are decomposed into features in the auditory system, there might be...

    The present study examined the facilitation effects of an auditory accessory stimulus that was irrelevant to a visual reaction time (RT) task as a function of stimulus onset asynchrony between the accessory stimulus and the visual target stimulus. Results of the present experiment showed that...

    This article presents a study on the role of pitch in auditory imagery. The results of the study showed that the times to mentally equate the pitch of the 2 images increased, and the time to identify the image with the higher or lower pitch decreased as the difference between the pitch ratings...
