When sounds look right and images sound correct: Cross-modal coherence enhances claims of pattern presence
Michał Ziembowicz , Andrzej Nowak , Piotr Winkielman
AbstractHow do people decide whether a stimulus contains a pattern? One possibility is that theyrely on a global, non-specific signal of coherence. Interestingly, this signal might reflect acombination of different stimulus sources. Consequently, the coherence of one stimulusmight influence decisions about coherence of a second, unrelated stimulus. We exploredthis possibility in three experiments in which participants judged the presence of a patternin targets from one sensory modality, while being exposed in the background to incidentalcoherent and incoherent stimuli in a different modality (visual-auditory, auditory-visual). Across all three experiments, using a variety of judgments, coherence ofincidental background cross-modal patterns enhanced claims of pattern presence. Thesefindings advance our understanding of how people judge order in the structured as wellas in the unstructured world.
