I was hoping someone might help me locate some research regarding auditory-visual relationships in mental imagery. In particular I would like to locate any research describing relationships between music and (visual) mental imagery. The following statements are apparently based on research of an origin which is now unknown to the authors, but which apparently does exist. ------- From: 2.About what proportion of people report seeing or imagining visual images while listening to music? About 50 percent. 3.Does musical training tend to increase or decrease the amount of visual imagery experienced by a listener? Decreases visualization. ------- If anybody can suggest the source of these statements I would be most grateful.
