Cross-modal magnitude matching as a precursor of multi-modal speech perception
2010 (English)In: Proceedings from Fonetik 2010, Lund, June 2-4, 2010 / [ed] Susanne Schötz and Gilbert Ambrazaitis, Lund: Department of Linguistics and Phonetics, Lund University , 2010, 69-73 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Four- to ten-month-old infants (n=58) were examined on their ability to match magnitude across modalities. Their looking behaviour was recorded as they were presented with an intensity modulated auditory stimulus and three possible visual matches. The mean looking times towards a visual target (size envelope matching intensity envelope of the auditory stimulus) and a non-target were calculated. Fivemonth-olds and seven- to ten-month-olds show a significant preference looking towards the target, as do an adult control group. Four- and six-month-olds do not.
