Effect of audiovisual primes on identification of auditory target syllables

Ville Ojanen, Jyrki Tuomainen, Mikko Sams

We studied the representations underlying audiovisual integration using a priming paradigm. Audiovisual primes, preceding auditory targets, were either incongruent (auditory /ba/ & visual /va/) or congruent (auditory /va/ & visual /va/, auditory /ba/ & visual /ba/). The targets were /ba/ or /va/. The intensity of the primeĀ“s auditory component was either 50 dB or 60 dB. Identification speed of the target /ba/ was strongly affected by the nature of the prime. The effect of the incongruent audiovisual prime depended on the intensity of its acoustic component. Our results suggest that processing of visible articulatory movements influence auditory speech processing.
