Harry McGurk and the McGurk Effect

Denis Burnham

The auditory-visual illusion now called the McGurk effect is a powerful demonstration of the integration of auditory and visual information in speech perception. This paper describes the theoretical Zeitgeist at the time of the discovery of this effect as a prelude to the following paper, in which McGurk discusses his work on infant development and auditory-visual speech perception.
