Zhu: Examining the influence of visual stimuli on auditory selective attention in a virtual classroom

2022-06-28 @ 11:30 - 12:00

Auditory selective attention (ASA) is a common phenomenon which describes the ability to intentionally focus on a specific source of sound while ignoring other irrelevant sounds. Since in real life there are usually visual distractors in addition to auditory distractors, the effect of visual stimuli on ASA is also worth investigating. The purpose of this study was to explore a new paradigm to investigate the influence of visual stimuli on ASA. In addition, the experiment was carried out in a virtual reality classroom because using virtual reality for research allows for the simulation of a variety of complex scenarios without changing the laboratory environment. The listening experiment was conducted with 24 adults. The statistical analysis revealed that the presence or absence of visual stimuli had a significant effect on reaction times and error rates of ASA, and the congruence of the visual stimulus compared to the auditory target stimulus also showed a trend to an effect which was not significant. Further investigations are needed to investigate this phenomenon and refine the audiovisual paradigm if necessary.
