The McGurk effect affected by the right ear advantage
AbstractThe McGurk effect affected by the right ear advantage was investigated. The most common demonstration of the REA was the dichotic listening test. Subjects were simultaneously played two different syllables, one to each ear, and must report the syllable they perceive. WADA tests showed that about 90-95% of right-handers were left-hemisphere dominant for language but only 80-85% show an REA in dichotic studies. The McGurk effect was dependent on the audio component being ambiguous. Subjects viewed audiovisual clips on a continuous loop. The clips consisted of a voice pronouncing /aba/ dubbed over video of a face saying /aga/. The experiment was conducted in a quite room, with subjects wearing 'Extreme Isolation' [registered trademark] headphones. It was observed that REA is significant for right-handers as a group.
