Abstract:

It was recently discovered that when word components such as lanket and banket, both derived from blanket, are presented one to each ear, the components may perceptually fuse into the word, but there are large individual differences in fusion rates. These differences may indicate differences in how people process information and therefore may be of considerable theoretical and practical significance. The present research correlated different measures of fusion in an attempt to determine the nature of the basic phenomenon.
