Re: Audiovisual contrast effects

Hi Tassos,

This is obviously synesthesia you are referring to?  Ramachandran and his colleague, Hubbard, have looked into this.  See:

Marks, L.E. (1975). On colored-hearing synesthesia: cross-modal translations of sensory dimensions. Psychol. Bull. 82, 303–331.

Hubbard, E.M., Manohar, S., and Ramachandran, V.S. (2006). Contrast affects the strength of synesthetic colors. Cortex, 42, 184-194.

Dear list,

Is anyone aware of any research that looks at audiovisual contrast effects? By that, I mean effects like sound intensity or pitch affecting the perception of colour intensity or luminance (or vice versa).

thank you,
