The temporal binding speed of sensory signals, processed in parallel, can be psychophysically estimated from the critical temporal frequency beyond which observers cannot discriminate the temporal relationship between two oscillating stimuli sequences. In vision, it has been reported that the upper temporal limits for within-attribute binding are relatively high (8-20 Hz), while those for cross-attribute binding are relatively low (~2.5 Hz). Here we examined whether similar results can be observed in audition.
The feature-specific mechanism for within-attribute temporal binding is fast, while the feature-invariant mechanism for cross-attribute binding is slow, in both vision and audition.
