McGurk Effect

Posted by lotsofwordsandnospaces May 17, 2011 in the Group General Discussion.

I found the following video really interesting:

I wonder if this effect might be behind some things I have observed.

For example, is someone is pronouncing tones _terribly_ in class (your soul is melting with it), if they move their heads with the tone, they seem to improve markedly.

I also wondered, if anyone on the Cpod staff wasn't too shy... if we could get some decent sized video of people pronouncing key words. I am certain the visual memory will aid in the learning of vocabulary.

That said, I haven't been about for ages, and need to upgrade my account to get sucha  cool feature!
