A new auditory attention decoding device allows people to selectively hear specific people in crowded environments.
Researchers report our brain is on high alert while listening to voices, finding we respond much faster to vocal aggression than normal or happy voices. The reason, researchers say, could be that our attention is more focused on threatening voices to help us recognize the location of a potential threat.
A neuroimaging study reveals the neural mechanism behind auditory attention.
A new study reports that listening to something while looking in a different direction may slow reaction times and increase the effort for auditory attention.
