Abstract : The influence of moving auditory stimuli on visual apparent motion perception was empirically investigated. The experiments investigated perceptual organization of visual stimuli driven by inter-stimulus interval (ISI) and angular extent in the presence of moving and non-moving auditory stimuli. Characteristics of, and refinements to, a new model of visual-auditory apparent motion perception are described. Dynamic characteristics of an auditory localizer, which was used in a large portion of the work, were evaluated to assess the ability to generalize the experimental results to other conditions.
