The Influence of Familial Sinistrality on Audiovisual Speech Perception

Sandhya Vinay, Dawn Behne


The present study investigates the influence of familial sinistrality on audiovisual speech perception for young adults. Incongruent video stimuli dubbed over dichotic and diotic audio stimuli were utilized. Participants’ responses for the right incongruent, left incongruent and video incongruent audiovisual stimuli were analyzed. Results indicated significantly higher proportion of fusion responses demonstrating increased audiovisual interaction in participants with familial sinistrality compared to those without familial sinistrality. Thus, the presence of familial sinistrality influences the role of visual information on the processing of audiovisual speech.
