The perceptual consequences of visual loss: 'positive' pathologies of vision. (1/458)

Fifty patients with visual hallucinations and illusions secondary to degenerative eye disease reported remarkably stereotyped experiences. Questionnaire responses revealed five previously recognized categories of pathological vision (perseveration, illusory visual spread, polyopia, prosopometamorphopsia and micro/macropsia) and three novel categories (tessellopsia, hyperchromatopsia and dendropsia). Identical pathologies of vision occur in a range of clinical and experimental settings, suggesting that they reflect fundamental visual processes. The known neurophysiology of the visual cortex helps explain the phenomenology of the experiences and provides the basis for a neurobiologically based classification of positive and negative visual perceptual disorders.  (+info)

Illusory arm movements activate cortical motor areas: a positron emission tomography study. (2/458)

Vibration at approximately 70 Hz on the biceps tendon elicits a vivid illusory arm extension. Nobody has examined which areas in the brain are activated when subjects perceive this kinesthetic illusion. The illusion was hypothesized to originate from activations of somatosensory areas normally engaged in kinesthesia. The locations of the microstructurally defined cytoarchitectonic areas of the primary motor (4a and 4p) and primary somatosensory cortex (3a, 3b, and 1) were obtained from population maps of these areas in standard anatomical format. The regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) was measured with (15)O-butanol and positron emission tomography in nine subjects. The left biceps tendon was vibrated at 10 Hz (LOW), at 70 or 80 Hz (ILLUSION), or at 220 or 240 Hz (HIGH). A REST condition with eyes closed was included in addition. Only the 70 and 80 Hz vibrations elicited strong illusory arm extensions in all subjects without any electromyographic activity in the arm muscles. When the rCBF of the ILLUSION condition was contrasted to the LOW and HIGH conditions, we found two clusters of activations, one in the supplementary motor area (SMA) extending into the caudal cingulate motor area (CMAc) and the other in area 4a extending into the dorsal premotor cortex (PMd) and area 4p. When LOW, HIGH, and ILLUSION were contrasted to REST, giving the main effect of vibration, areas 4p, 3b, and 1, the frontal and parietal operculum, and the insular cortex were activated. Thus, with the exception of area 4p, the effects of vibration and illusion were associated with disparate cortical areas. This indicates that the SMA, CMAc, PMd, and area 4a were activated associated with the kinesthetic illusion. Thus, against our expectations, motor areas rather than somatosensory areas seem to convey the illusion of limb movement.  (+info)

Motion-based mechanisms of illusory contour synthesis. (3/458)

Neurophysiological studies and computational models of illusory contour formation have focused on contour orientation as the underlying determinant of illusory contour shape in both static and moving displays. Here, we report a class of motion-induced illusory contours that demonstrate the existence of novel mechanisms of illusory contour synthesis. In a series of experiments, we show that the velocity of contour terminations and the direction of motion of a partially occluded figure regulate the perceived shape and apparent movement of illusory contours formed from moving image sequences. These results demonstrate the existence of neural mechanisms that reconstruct occlusion relationships from both real and inferred image velocities, in contrast to the static geometric mechanisms that have been the focus of studies to date.  (+info)

Explaining the moon illusion. (4/458)

An old explanation of the moon illusion holds that various cues place the horizon moon at an effectively greater distance than the elevated moon. Although both moons have the same angular size, the horizon moon must be perceived as larger. More recent explanations hold that differences in accommodation or other factors cause the elevated moon to appear smaller. As a result of this illusory difference in size, the elevated moon appears to be more distant than the horizon moon. These two explanations, both based on the geometry of stereopsis, lead to two diametrically opposed hypotheses. That is, a depth interval at a long distance is associated with a smaller binocular disparity, whereas an equal depth interval at a smaller distance is associated with a larger disparity. We conducted experiments involving artificial moons and confirmed the hypothesis that the horizon moon is at a greater perceptual distance. Moreover, when a moon of constant angular size was moved closer it was also perceived as growing smaller, which is consistent with the older explanation. Although Emmert's law does not predict the size-distance relationship over long distances, we conclude that the horizon moon is perceived as larger because the perceptual system treats it as though it is much farther away. Finally, we observe that recent explanations substitute perceived size for angular size as a cue to distance. Thus, they imply that perceptions cause perceptions.  (+info)

Afterimages, grating induction and illusory phantoms. (6/458)

Under some conditions (dark or light inspection areas) illusory gratings often appear to be in-phase with the inducing gratings and under others (gray inspection area) illusory gratings often appear to be out-of-phase with the inducing gratings. McCourt reported that point-by-point brightness matches reveal only out-of-phase illusory gratings, no matter what the luminance of the inspection area (McCourt, M. E. (1994). Vision Research, 34, 1609-1617). Since the technique used might have led to afterimages which mimic out-of-phase illusory gratings, the present series of experiments was undertaken to determine how such afterimages might bias illusory grating judgments. Afterimages were induced during fixation with brief flashes of inducing gratings within the inspection area (Experiment 1), or by vertical shifts in the entire stimulus which exposed the retina to real gratings prior to judgments within the inspection area (Experiment 2). Experiment 2 was replicated with drifting inducing gratings (Experiment 3). The subjects were asked to indicate whether illusory gratings appeared in- or out-of-phase. The results of all three experiments reveal that out-of-phase illusory gratings predominate, and that afterimages can only bias judgments with stationary displays. It is suggested that grating induction is perceived when subjects attend to local contrast differences, while phantom visibility is facilitated when attention is captured by the more global aspects of the stimulus.  (+info)

Illusions in reasoning about consistency. (7/458)

Reasoners succumb to predictable illusions in evaluating whether sets of assertions are consistent. We report two studies of this computationally intractable task of "satisfiability." The results show that as the number of possibilities compatible with the assertions increases, the difficulty of the task increases, and that reasoners represent what is true according to assertions, not what is false. This procedure avoids overloading memory, but it yields illusions of consistency and of inconsistency. These illusions modify our picture of human rationality.  (+info)

Reaching during virtual rotation: context specific compensations for expected coriolis forces. (8/458)

Subjects who are in an enclosed chamber rotating at constant velocity feel physically stationary but make errors when pointing to targets. Reaching paths and endpoints are deviated in the direction of the transient inertial Coriolis forces generated by their arm movements. By contrast, reaching movements made during natural, voluntary torso rotation seem to be accurate, and subjects are unaware of the Coriolis forces generated by their movements. This pattern suggests that the motor plan for reaching movements uses a representation of body motion to prepare compensations for impending self-generated accelerative loads on the arm. If so, stationary subjects who are experiencing illusory self-rotation should make reaching errors when pointing to a target. These errors should be in the direction opposite the Coriolis accelerations their arm movements would generate if they were actually rotating. To determine whether such compensations exist, we had subjects in four experiments make visually open-loop reaches to targets while they were experiencing compelling illusory self-rotation and displacement induced by rotation of a complex, natural visual scene. The paths and endpoints of their initial reaching movements were significantly displaced leftward during counterclockwise illusory rotary displacement and rightward during clockwise illusory self-displacement. Subjects reached in a curvilinear path to the wrong place. These reaching errors were opposite in direction to the Coriolis forces that would have been generated by their arm movements during actual torso rotation. The magnitude of path curvature and endpoint errors increased as the speed of illusory self-rotation increased. In successive reaches, movement paths became straighter and endpoints more accurate despite the absence of visual error feedback or tactile feedback about target location. When subjects were again presented a stationary scene, their initial reaches were indistinguishable from pre-exposure baseline, indicating a total absence of aftereffects. These experiments demonstrate that the nervous system automatically compensates in a context-specific fashion for the Coriolis forces associated with reaching movements.  (+info)

We investigate whether the neural correlates of the continuity illusion, as measured using fMRI, are modulated by attention. As we have shown previously, when two formants of a synthetic vowel are presented in an alternating pattern, the vowel can be identified if the gaps in each formant are filled with bursts of plausible masking noise, causing the illusory percept of a continuous vowel (Illusion condition). When the formant-to-noise ratio is increased so that noise no longer plausibly masks the formants, the formants are heard as interrupted (Illusion Break condition) and vowels are not identifiable. A region of the left middle temporal gyrus (MTG) is sensitive both to intact synthetic vowels (two formants present simultaneously) and to Illusion stimuli, compared to Illusion Break stimuli. Here, we compared these conditions in the presence and absence of attention. We examined fMRI signal for different sound types under three attentional conditions: full attention to the vowels; attention ...

Recent work has shown that pictorial illusions have a greater effect on perceptual judgements than they do on the visual control of actions, such as object-directed grasping. This dissociation between vision for perception and vision for action is thought to reflect the operation of two separate streams of visual processing in the brain. Glover and Dixon claim, however, that perceptual illusions can influence the control of grasping but that these effects are evident only at early stages of the movement. By the time the action nears its completion any effect of illusions disappears. Glover and Dixon suggest that these results are consistent with what they call a planning and control model of action, in which actions are planned using a context-dependent visual representation but are monitored and corrected online using a context-independent representation. We reanalysed data from an earlier experiment on grasping in the Ebbinghaus illusion in which we showed that maximum grip aperture was ...

Germine, L., Benson, T. L., Cohen, F., & Hooker, C. I. (2013). Psychosis-proneness and the rubber hand illusion of body ownership. Psychiatry Res , 207, 45-52.
Our understanding of body ownership largely relies on the so-called Rubber Hand Illusion (RHI). In this paradigm, synchronous stroking of the real and the rubber hands leads to an illusion of ownership of the rubber hand provided that it is physically, anatomically, and spatially plausible. Self-attribution of an artificial hand also occurs during visuomotor synchrony. In particular, participants experience ownership over a virtual or a rubber hand when the visual feedback of self-initiated movements follows the trajectory of the instantiated motor commands, such as in the Virtual Hand Illusion (VHI) or the moving Rubber Hand Illusion (mRHI). Evidence yields that both when the cues are triggered externally (RHI) and when they result from voluntary actions (VHI and mRHI), the experience of ownership is established through bottom-up integration and top-down prediction of proximodistal cues (visuotactile or visuomotor) within the peripersonal space.

In an attempt to assess the importance of gaze stability, in previous work (Zanker, Doyle, & Walker, 2003) we compared measurements of participants eye movements made while looking at stimuli inspired by Bridget Rileys Fall with the occurrence of illusory motion percepts. This type of stimulus differs from Enigma in that it is composed purely from periodic line patterns, without any superimposed regions of homogeneous color, and consequently the generated motion illusion is restricted to the jazzing and shimmering sensation similar to that seen for the radial line patterns. By contrast, the streaming inside the regions of different color experienced in Enigma is absent-and in this sense Riley stimuli are simpler and therefore provide a useful tool to constrain the investigation of motion illusions in static patterns to a single phenomenon. This difference is particularly relevant because there are indications that the streaming sensation is preserved when the retinal image is ...
Intelligent tutor systems (ITSs) in mobile devices take us through learning tasks and make learning ubiquitous, autonomous, and at low cost (Nye, 2015). In this paper, we describe guided embodiment as an ITS essential feature for second language learning (L2) and aphasia rehabilitation (ARe) that enhances efficiency in the learning process. In embodiment, cognitive processes, here specifically language (re)learning are grounded in actions and gestures (Pecher and Zwaan, 2005; Fischer and Zwaan, 2008; Dijkstra and Post, 2015). In order to guide users through embodiment, ITSs must track action and gesture, and give corrective feed-back to achieve the users goals. Therefore, sensor systems are essential to guided embodiment. In the next sections, we describe sensor systems that can be implemented in ITS for guided embodiment.

Participants usually respond faster to larger objects as compared to smaller objects. In order to perceive an objects size, the brain needs to integrate contextual information such as object distance, an effect elucidated by various visual illusions. Accordingly, the perceived size of identical objects can differentially be altered via depth cues that create differentially perceived object distances. Recently, it has been demonstrated that simple reaction times are modulated by the perceived rather than by the retinal size of an object. This indicates that responses are generated subsequent to distance and retinal size integration. However, the timing aspects of these integration processes are largely unclear. Therefore, the present study investigated the influence of stimulus duration on size - distance integration by means of a simple reaction time paradigm. In two experiments we verified the effect that reaction times are susceptible to a variant of the well known Ponzo illusion. In the ...

A study using a procedure called the rubber hand illusion has found striking new evidence that people experiencing schizophrenia have a weakened sense of body ownership and has produced the first case of a spontaneous, out-of-body experience in the laboratory.. These findings suggest that movement therapy, which trains people to be focused and centered on their own bodies, including some forms of yoga and dance, could be helpful for many of the 2.2 million people in the United States who suffer from this mental disorder.. The study, which appears in the Oct. 31 issue of the scientific journal Public Library of Science One, measured the strength of body ownership of 24 schizophrenia patients and 21 matched control subjects by testing their susceptibility to the rubber hand illusion or RHI. This tactile illusion, which was discovered in 1998, is induced by simultaneously stroking a visible rubber hand and the subjects hidden hand. ...

The Ternus illusion, also commonly referred to as the Ternus Effect is an illusion related to human visual perception involving apparent motion. In a simplified explanation of one form of the illusion, two discs, (referred to here as L for left and C for centre) are shown side by side as the first frame in a sequence of three frames. Next a blank frame is presented for a very short, variable duration. In the final frame, two similar discs (C for centre and R for right) are then shown in a shifted position. Depending on various factors including the time intervals between frames as well as spacing and layout, observers perceive either element motion, in which L appears to move to R while C remains stationary or they report experiencing group motion, in which L and C appear to move together to C and R. Both element motion and group motion can be observed in animated examples to the right in Figures 1 and 2. In 1926 and then again in 1938, the Gestalt psychologist Joseph Ternus observed and defined ...
Keith,. I think youre right that theres no hard problem and that we should endeavor instead to solve the the semi-hard (but tractable) Illusion problem. Heres how I think one should approach the illusion problem. Id begin with the Fregean notion of Mode of Presentation (MOP). The same object/thing can be presented to you under different MOP. Under some MOPs, you may recognize the object, under other MOPs you may not. You even may apprehend the same object under two different MOPs and fail to realize that the same object is presented in two different ways. You may think that some object, O, is two separate objects, O1 and O2. Call this phenomenon recognition failure. I think the illusion of consciousness is caused by recognition failure. Suppose you looked at a red object that caused a reddish sensation in you. On introspection, you recognize that you are having a reddish sensation, identifying the experience correctly as reddish. Here, reddishness is presented to you under MOP1. Now ...
Out of the body tactile illusion refers to the phenomenon in which one can perceive tactility as if emanating from a location external to the body without any stimulator present there. Taking advantage of such a tactile illusion is one way to provide and realize richer interaction feedback without employing and placing actuators directly at all stimulation target points. However, to further explore its potential, it is important to better understand the underlying physiological and neural mechanism. As such, we measured the brain wave patterns during such tactile illusion and mapped out the corresponding brain activation areas. Participants were given stimulations at different levels with the intention to create veridical (i.e., non-illusory) and phantom sensations at different locations along an external hand-held virtual ruler. The experimental data and analysis indicate that both veridical and illusory sensations involve, among others, the parietal lobe, one of the most important components ...
The missing-fundamental illusion describes how a square wave with its fundamental Fourier component removed appears as a square wave. This illusion is normally explained with reference to the bandpass nature of the luminance-contrast-sensitivity function, together with a default-to-square-wave rule. Since the chromatic-contrast-sensitivity function is low-pass, we should not expect a missing-fundamental illusion at isoluminance. Using a simultaneous-detection-and-identification paradigm to eliminate contrast as a cue to discrimination, we nevertheless found that chromatic missing fundamentals and square waves could not be separately identified at detection threshold: just under twice the contrast required to detect the stimuli was needed to identify them. To test whether this was due to insufficiently narrow chromatic-channel bandwidths, we measured detection and identification thresholds for chromatic F and 3F sine-wave gratings. In this case identification was possible almost at detection ...

The clustering illusion is the tendency to erroneously consider the inevitable streaks or clusters arising in small samples from random distributions to be non-random. The illusion is caused by a human tendency to underpredict the amount of variability likely to appear in a small sample of random or semi-random data. Thomas Gilovich, an early author on the subject, argued that the effect occurs for different types of random dispersions, including two-dimensional data such as clusters in the locations of impact of World War II V-1 flying bombs on maps of London; or seeing patterns in stock market price fluctuations over time. Although Londoners developed specific theories about the pattern of impacts within London, a statistical analysis by R. D. Clarke originally published in 1946 showed that the impacts of V-2 rockets on London were a close fit to a random distribution. The clustering illusion is central to the hot hand fallacy, the first study of which was reported by Gilovich, Robert ...
Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper studies corrective strategies for the illusion of delayed incentives (Soman, 1998), the phenomena that money-for-effort transactions that are unattractive in the present appear attractive when they are in the future. This illusion occurs because future effort is discounted more heavily than future monetary outcomes. In this research, we show that this bias of differential discounting can be corrected by asking consumers to perform effort at the time of decision-making. We further outline three explanations for why this intervention attenuates the illusion of delayed incentives, and discuss whether these explanations constitute a debiasing effect or a rebiasing effect (Larrick, 2004). We report the results of two laboratory experiments and discuss theoretical and practical implications of our findings.

Visual motion detection is one of the most important computations performed by visual circuits. Yet, we perceive vivid illusory motion in stationary, periodic luminance gradients that contain no true motion. This illusion is shared by diverse vertebrate species, but theories proposed to explain this illusion have remained difficult to test. Here, we demonstrate that in the fruit fly Drosophila, the illusory motion percept is generated by unbalanced contributions of direction-selective neurons responses to stationary edges. First, we found that flies, like humans, perceive sustained motion in the stationary gradients. The percept was abolished when the elementary motion detector neurons T4 and T5 were silenced. In vivo calcium imaging revealed that T4 and T5 neurons encode the location and polarity of stationary edges. Furthermore, our proposed mechanistic model allowed us to predictably manipulate both the magnitude and direction of the flys illusory percept by selectively silencing either T4 ...

Bodypainting and eye tricks are a skill I perfected working with stills photographers, says Annie, who also shared her creative ideas with BBC as a scenic artist.. These illusion paintings are meticulous work, but it has to be carried out at speed, partly because the canvas walks away at the end of the day and partly because the paint is less stable on a living, moving base. The work is fun and the resulting unique art can be beautiful.. Scroll down below to check these incredibly cool artworks for yourself!. Website: annieralli.com ...
In this piece we will consider the work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty as it relates to critical psychology & also discuss the possibility of its use as a theoretical framework for empirical studies. We will focus specifically on Merleau-Pontys concepts of perception & embodiment & ask what these may add to perspectives within critical psychology. In terms of these concepts, Merleau-Ponty offers a radically different view of perception from that which is common in mainstream psychology, along with a radically different view of human embodiment. Given this, we believe that many of his ideas are important for critical psychology & could give it an alternative direction. Phenomenological perspectives are also of use in critical, empirical studies, & here we use the concepts of perception & embodiment to reassess the literature on anorexia nervosa. It is our contention that these concepts allow us to rethink the embodied nature of anorexia, particularly in terms of the way that the body is conceptualised ...

This book is a comparative study exploring the writings of an Indian Christian theologian named Ayadurai Jesudason Appasamy (1891-1975) and his comparative theological interaction with the twelfth-century Śrivaiṣṇava reformer, Rāmānuja. The doctrinal focus is Appasamys four-fold Johannine application of the Body of God analogy-the Universe, Incarnation, Eucharist, and Church being his four divine embodiments. Critics in Appasamys day described his theological project as bold heresies, a synthesis of Christianity and Vedānta that has shifted the axis from Christianity to Hindu religion. By reading Appasamy in the context of his devotional tradition, however, this study demonstrates that his application of the embodiment analogy is rooted, rather, in the sacramental theology of early twentieth-century Anglicanism. His embodiment theology, in fact, closely reflects the theological developments that took place in Anglican scholarship between the time of Charles Gore and William

Why not experience a mindbender every day? This book is a great way to enjoy an optical illusion every day or take them in all at once. Every page features an optical illusion from one of the three main types -- literal, physiological and cognitive. Literal optical illusions create images that are unique from the objects that make them. Physiological illusions occur when the eyes and brain are subjected to excessive stimulation by brightness, color, size, position, tilt or movement. Cognitive illusions are the result of unconscious inferences. All trick the mind into perceiving something altogether different than what the eyes see. The 365 illusions here are based on those variations. There are instantly recognizable classics that trick the eye no matter how many times you see them, and dozens of new ones, like astounding sidewalk illusions and masterful architecture. There are illustrations, paintings and graphics, as well as color and black and white photographs of scenes ranging from ...
Background: In rubber hand illusions and full body illusions, touch sensations are projected to non-body objects such as rubber hands, dolls or virtual bodies. The robustness, limits and further perceptual consequences of such illusions are not yet fully explored or understood. A number of experiments are reported that test the limits of a variant of the rubber hand illusion. Methodology/Principal Findings:A variant of the rubber hand illusion is explored, in which the real and foreign hands are aligned in personal space. The presence of the illusion is ascertained with participants' scores and temperature changes of the real arm. This generates a basic illusion of touch projected to a foreign arm. Participants are presented with further, unusual visuotactile stimuli subsequent to onset of the basic illusion. Such further visuotactile stimulation is found to generate very unusual experiences of supernatural touch and touch on a non-hand object. The finding of touch on a nonhand object ...

Support more videos like this at patreon.com/rebecca!. Transcript:. A big part of being a skeptic is having a healthy (or some would say unhealthy) interest in optical illusions. After all, a lot of skepticism is just recognizing when we are being fooled, and optical illusions are all about your own brain fooling itself. One of the simplest and most common optical illusions is pareidolia, in which an inanimate object looks like something else. This pops up in religious iconography all the time, like when Jesus appears in your toast, or the word Allah is written in your flatbread, or Mother Theresa in a cinnamon bun, or when Jesus also appears in your dogs butthole.. More commonly, its just a face: a face on the moon, on mars, in your coffee, on an eggplant, or on your mailbox. Thats common because your brain is primed to pick out other human faces, so youre really good at it. Too good, in fact, because you end up with some false positives. Basically, any two dots with a line under it will ...

Slow and gradual motion below perception thresholds will not be detected by the vestibular system. Together with the cochlea, a part of the auditory system, it constitutes the labyrinth of the inner ear in most mammals. The next most common type of vestibular illusion that occurs during a turn is the Somatogyric illusion - best known as the graveyard spin. It is intended to help flight crew avoid the traps associated with vestibular illusions and to increase flight safety through better awareness of their causes. Description. The internal diameter of each canal is very small (approximately 0.3 mm, 0.01 in). This force causes the cilia to bend. Proprioception (nerve endings in the muscles, joints and skin) accounts for around 10% of orientation. Cause. Aviation Publications Transport Canada is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. However, now the pilot looks up … This is a dangerous situation for a non-IFR rated pilot who tries to fly visually in IMC. If the eyes moved directly with the ...

Long-distance throwing is uniquely human and enabled Homo sapiens to survive and even thrive during the ice ages. The precise motoric timing required relates throwing and speech abilities as dependent on the same uniquely human brain structures. Evidence from studies of brain evolution is consistent with this understanding of the evolution and success of H. sapiens. Recent theories of language development find readiness to develop language capabilities in perceptual biases that help generate ability to detect relevant higher order acoustic units that underlie speech. Might human throwing capabilities exhibit similar forms of readiness? Recently, human perception of optimal objects for long-distance throwing was found to exhibit a size-weight relation similar to the size-weight illusion; greater weights were picked for larger objects and were thrown the farthest. The size-weight illusion is: lift two objects of equal mass but different size, the larger is misperceived to be less heavy than the ...
Why does the painting appear to move at all? The phenomenon is known as illusory motion, and most scientists attribute it to a flaw in our visual cortex. But according to the Arizona researchers new study, the motion is actually a result of microsaccades - unconscious eye movements that occur spontaneously whenever we focus our eyes. The researchers arrived at their conclusion after mounting tiny infared cameras on a helmet and tracking the eyeballs of people confronted with Enigma. Oddly, microsaccade rates increased right before the motion began and all but disappeared before the painting went still. The illusions real, it seems, but in a twist that Alan Watts and Carlos Castaneda anticipated, its an illusion that lies within us all. ...

The McGurk effect is a compelling illusion in which humans auditorily perceive mismatched audiovisual speech as a completely different syllable. In this study evidences are provided that professional musicians are not subject to this illusion, possibly because of their finer auditory or attentional abilities. 80 healthy age-matched graduate students volunteered to the study. 40 were musicians of Brescia Luca Marenzio Conservatory of Music with at least 8-13 years of musical academic studies. /la/, /da/, /ta/, /ga/, /ka/, /na/, /ba/, /pa/ phonemes were presented to participants in audiovisual congruent and incongruent conditions, or in unimodal (only visual or only auditory) conditions while engaged in syllable recognition tasks. Overall musicians showed no significant McGurk effect for any of the phonemes. Controls showed a marked McGurk effect for several phonemes (including alveolar-nasal, velar-occlusive and bilabial ones). The results indicate that the early and intensive musical training might
