Abstract

The effect of gaze direction on the localization of sound sources was investigated in the azimuthal and elevational dimension using a pointing task. In both dimensions, eccentric eye-position induced a significant shift in sound localization that was opposite to the direction of eccentricity. This finding is in accordance with the view that the azimuthal and elevational components of the auditory spatial information are processed in common neural substrates.
