Exp 3 - Perceptual Prioritisation of Self-Voices: Choice

This experiment uses the same design as in Experiment 1 (please see for more info on tasks). However, in Exp 3 the participants are first asked to choose which voice they want to have as a self-voice and thus represent them for the rest of the experiment. The main task requires speeded judgements about whether voices (auditory stimuli) and their identity (visual stimuli) are correctly matched or not. Reaction times and accuracy are both collected.

Tasks include: 1) Choose a new self voice. Involves listening to auditory voice stimuli and making a selection from a drop-down menu. The selection response is then used to branch participants into the correct version of the subsequent task, ensuring their chosen voice represents the 'self' and the friend-, and other-associated voices are counterbalanced.

2) State the strength of preference for that voice. Includes a 5-point Likert slider.

3) Perceptual matching task: similar to Exp. 1+ 2, but adapted to incorporate choice-based counterbalancing.
