There is more to hearing than what goes through the ears – new publication from MIB

New research carried out by PhD student Cecilie Møller and colleagues shows that people with poorer auditory abilities benefit more from visual cues in a pitch discrimination task.

The study described in the paper showed how visual cues facilitate pitch discrimination and more so when the cues are crossmodally congruent than when they are incongruent with repect to pitch height/vertical position. We also show that the general facilitation but not the specific congruence effect is stronger in people with poorer pitch discrimination abilities and stronger with poorer performance on the Musical Ear Test.
