Dear list, In case anyone might be interested in 'seing' the McGurk-effect in practice (i.e. the illusion that your're hearing "DA", when really hearing "BA" in synch with the lipmovements "GA"), I've made a web-version that you can visit. The address is: To make the Quicktime-movie as small as possible (272k), the clip, alas, has a pretty lousy quality. But, at least it works *fairly* well... Greetings from Arnt Maaso 8^) PS. If you can't get it to work on your machine, you might try listening through a headset (you should have a mini-jack output on your PC/Mac) -- also, if the images are not playing/streaming in synch with the sound, try downloading the file to your harddrive and play it from "Movieplayer". ******************************************** "Hearing is a way of touching at a distance".
