Three experiments examine the effect of a difference in fundamental frequency (F0) range between two simultaneous voices on the processing of unattended speech. Previous experiments have only found evidence for the processing of nominally unattended speech when it has consisted of isolated words which could have attracted the listener's attention. A(More)
This study assessed the influence of tempo on selecting a sound sequence. In Exp. 1, synchronization with one of the two regular subsequences in a complex sequence was measured. 30 participants indicated a preference for the fastest subsequence when subsequences were in a slow tempo range (> or = 500 msec. IOI), and with the slower subsequence when they(More)
Rivenez et al. [J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 119 (6), 4027-4040 (2006)] recently demonstrated that an unattended message is able to prime by 28 ms a simultaneously presented attended message when the two messages have a different F0 range. This study asks whether a difference in vocal-tract length between the two messages rather than a difference in F0 can also(More)
