defining a 'fixation point' in audition
Dear list members,
I am in the process of redesigning a test dealing with attention and auditory
saliency but then I have a doubt about how to define, and possibly control, the
'fixation point' (in the case of sound stimuli).
I am using headphones, so head-tracking is not an option, I believe.
I also have thought that, giving credit to a supramodal model of attention, I
could provide a visual fixation point (a cross on the screen) but this would be
a fallback solution since I would like to keep it unimodal at this stage (and I
am addressing stimulus-driven attention).
This may sound as a very naive question to most of you, but I am turning it to
the community since I always got precious comments and feedback in the past.
