Certain auditory cues not only help us recognize an object more quickly, but they also even alter our visual perception.
New research focuses on how memory can impact the perception of auditory and visual information.
Researchers report different brain areas are activated when a guitarists and beatboxers hear previously unheard tracks by their instrument of choice. Beatboxers, researchers say, show increased activation in brain areas that control mouth movements, where as guitarists show activation in areas that control hand movements. The study sheds light on understanding brain areas involved in auditory perception.
