Visual and acoustic confusability a visual search task

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Visual and acoustic confusability between a target item and background items was varied in a visual search task. Visual confusability was a highly significant source of difficulty while acoustic confusability had no effect. The results do not seem to be interpretable within a theory which assumes compulsory auditory encoding of visual information.
