The McGurk Illusion in the Oddity Task

Department of Informatics and Mathematical Modeling, Technical University of Denmark

Despite many studies of audiovisual integration in speech perception very few studies have addressed the issue of cross-modal response bias. Using synthetic acoustic speech, the current study demonstrates the McGurk illusion in the oddity task which is not prone to cross-modal response bias. This new method may be an useful tool for determining under which conditions audiovisual integration of speech occurs.
