Perceived Audiovisual Simultaneity in Speech by Musicians and Nonmusicians: Preliminary Behavioral and Event-Related Potential (ERP) Findings

Dawn Behne, Marzieh Sorati, Magnus Alm


In audiovisual simultaneity perception, audio-lead and video- lead are generally considered fundamentally different, despite both being occurrences of physical misalignment. The current study pursues this difference, in a preliminary study comparing musicians with non-musicians across audio-lead, synchronous and video-lead alignments in behavioral and ERP simultaneity judgment tasks. Results to date are consistent with the conclusion that musicians are more sensitive to audiovisual asynchrony than non-musicians, in particular for audio-lead, and highlight the role of experience in facilitating sensory processing.
