Hearing Shapes: Event-related Potentials Reveal the Time Course of Auditory–Visual Sensory Substitution

Published in: Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Volume 30, Issue 4, April 2018, 498-513 Abstract “In auditory–visual sensory substitution, visual information (e.g., shape) can be extracted through strictly auditory input (e.g., soundscapes). Previous studies have shown that image-to-sound conversions that follow simple rules [such as the Meijer algorithm; Meijer, P. B. L. An experimental system for auditory image representation. Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 39, 111–121, 1992] are highly intuitive and rapidly learned by both blind and sighted individuals. A number of recent fMRI studies have begun to explore the neuroplastic changes that result from sensory substitution training. However, the time course of cross-sensory information… Read More
