Concepts, including the mental number line, or addressing pitch as high and low, suggest that the spatial-numerical and spatial-pitch association of response codes (SNARC and SPARC) effects are domain-specific and thus independent. Alternatively, there may be dependencies between these effects, because they share common automatic or controlled decision mechanisms. In two experiments, participants were presented with spoken numbers in different pitches; their numerical value, pitch, and response… CONTINUE READING
