Listener cognitive performance improvements from implementations of enhanced spatialized auditory displays are considered. Investigations of cognitive decision making driven by stimuli organized in ‘center-surround’ auditory-only, and visual-only arrangements are described. These new prototype interfaces employing a center-surround organization (‘listening within – listening without’) exploit the capability of the auditory and visual modalities for concurrent operation and facilitate their functioning to support cognitive performance in synthetic, immersive environments.
