Effect of Spatial Location and Presentation Rate on the Reaction to Auditory Displays

(Subscribe to this discussion)

Document Thumbnail

The way in which auditory displays are presented can significantly influence the experience of listeners. Spatio-temporal factors influence and redirect the attention toward such displays. These factors include presentation speed, stimulus externalization, and location in the three dimensional space. Results show that stimuli perceived inside the head resulted in a more accurate and faster response than those that were externalized. For externalized auditory displays, those presented in the frontal hemisphere were attended to faster. Response times did not change linearly with presentation speed; there was an optimal presentation rate at which the response time is fastest without compromising accuracy.

Dr. Roginska:  Thanks for the refreshing updates.  I'm curious about the digit assignments and can they be morphed and or stretched over a period of time and still be effectively retained as a cognitive memory trace?
