In a series of experiments, we examined whether auditory attention shifts in the direction of an upcoming saccade, as recently reported for visual attention. Normal listeners made speeded discriminations for the elevation (up versus down) of abrupt sounds, regardless of their laterality. Each sound was presented around the time that a lateral saccade was made. Auditory elevation discriminations were reliably faster when the saccade was made towards the side of the auditory probe rather than… CONTINUE READING
