BACKGROUND Maintaining balance is known to be a multisensory process that uses information from different sensory organs. Although it has been known for a long time that spatial hearing cues provide humans with moderately accurate abilities to localize sound sources, how the auditory system interacts with balance mediated by the vestibular system remains largely a mystery. PURPOSE The primary goal of the current study was to determine whether auditory spatial cues obtained from a fixed sound… CONTINUE READING
