A physics student at our university just queried me about the following alleged illusion: >I am looking for a recording of an acoustic >illusion which I heard a while ago: You hear some garbled noise, then >someone tells you that a message, such as "My name is Al" is in there >among the noise. Upon hearing the garble again, the message can be heard >clearly. Does anyone know if a recording of this example is available? Jim Beauchamp University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign j-beauch(at)
