Royal Society Research Fellow Professor Jenny Bizley explores the neuroscience of our hearing and the crossover of our senses.
Our brains process hundreds of sensory inputs at once, but only recently have we discovered that our sight might play a surprisingly big part in what we think we hear.
Imagine you’re at the cinema - does the voice of the character on screen sound like it’s coming from the character’s mouth or from the speaker behind you? Most likely you answered ‘their mouth’. The perception versus reality is clearly different, but can we explain what’s happening inside our brains?
