Multisensory warning signals: when spatial correspondence matters

  title={Multisensory warning signals: when spatial correspondence matters},
  author={Cristy Ho and Valerio Santangelo and Charles Spence},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
We report a study designed to investigate the effectiveness of task-irrelevant unimodal and bimodal audiotactile stimuli in capturing a person’s spatial attention away from a highly perceptually demanding central rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP) task. In “Experiment 1”, participants made speeded elevation discrimination responses to peripheral visual targets following the presentation of auditory stimuli that were either presented alone or else were paired with centrally presented… CONTINUE READING
