Abstract:

Adaptation to rearranged ear-hand coordination, generated by exposure to an auditory tracking task entailing 30 degrees of functional rotation of the interaural axis was explored using 12 Ss. The results show that sensorimotor alterations that follow such auditory rearrangement are confined to ear-hand responses and do not transfer intermodally to eye-hand coordinations. These findings fail to support the so called proprioceptive change hypothesis of auditory adaptation.
