The time course of audiovisual information in speech perception was examined using a gating paradigm. VCVs that evoked the McGurk effect were gated visually and auditorily. The visual gating yielded a McGurk effect that increased in strength as a linear function of amount of visual stimulus presented. The acoustic gating revealed a more nonlinear function in which the VC information was considerably weaker than the CV portion of the VCV. The results suggest that the flow of cross-modal information in quite complex during audiovisual speech perception.
