There have been various studies on the effects of emotional visual processing on subsequent non-emotional auditory stimuli. A previous study with EEG has shown that responses to deviant sounds presented after presenting negative pictures collected more attentional resources than those for neutral pictures. To investigate such a compelling between e...

In daily life, our emotions are often elicited by a multimodal environment, mainly visual and auditory stimuli. Therefore, it is crucial to investigate the symmetrical characteristics of emotional responses to pictures and sounds. In this study, we aimed to elucidate the relationship of attentional states to emotional unimodal stimuli (pictures or...

... An observer with a rate of rejected trials over 50% was excluded, and we used the data of the remaining 21 observers (mean and standard deviation of rejected trials was 9.2 ± 11.4%). Baseline correction was performed using the same procedure as that in Nakakoga et al. (2021). The baseline was defined as the average pupil diameter for 200 ms prior to the beginning of the stimulus presentation, and we computed each pupil's diameter change by subtracting the baseline from the original pupil diameter. ...
... Nevertheless, in real life the strict distinction of visual and other stimuli is somewhat artificial because stimuli come in a multisensory fashion. Yet, although some research has been devoted to multisensory integration in general (Noesselt et al., 2010;Spence, 2007;Stein et al., 1996;Stein & Stanford, 2008;Talsma et al., 2010;Thompson et al., 1958), only relatively little research has been devoted to investigating possible interactions between multisensory inputs of affective stimuli (but see also Nakakoga et al., 2020). Importantly, multisensory inputs here can refer to a given real-life object (e.g., a snake that is hissing), but can also refer to more general interactions (e.g., a certain sound under bright or dark lighting conditions). ...
