Sounds with increasing intensity can act as intrinsic warning cues by signalling that the sound source is approaching. However, intensity change is not always the dominant motion cue to a moving sound, and the effects of simple rising intensity sounds versus sounds with full three dimensional motion cues have not yet been directly compared. Here, we examined skin conductance responses, phasic alertness, and perceptual and explicit emotional ratings in response to approaching and receding sounds… CONTINUE READING
