Zusammenfassung
When we listen to someone in a noisy environment, such as in a noisy restaurant, it helps to look at the person’s lips to better understand what the person is saying. This behavioural benefit is thought to be based on the interaction of auditory and visual processing mechanisms in the human brain. Surprisingly, interaction of audio-visual processing mechanisms also occurs when there is no visual signal, for example when listening to someone on the phone. In this talk I will present evidence from behavioural and neuroimaging experiments that show that this active involvement of visual cortices during auditory-only perception improves understanding what is said and recognising who is talking.
