Dr.-Ing. Jan-Niklas Voigt-Antons


Jan-Niklas Voigt-Antons joined the Telekom Innovation Laboratories as a research scientist in January 2009 and is working there since 2014 as a senior research scientist. He received his diploma in psychology in 2008 from the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, a Doctor-of-Engineering degree in 2014 from the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany and has been doing research at the Quality and Usability Lab at the Technische Universität (TU) Berlin, since. His research interests are in Quality-of-Experience evaluation and its physiological correlates with an emphasis on media transmissions and human-machine-interaction, including neural processing of multimodal interaction. During summer 2012 he was visiting researcher at MuSAE Lab (INRS-EMT), Canada where he examined neural correlates of quality perception for complex speech signals. In spring 2014 he was visiting researcher at the department of psychology of NTNU, Norway where he examined neural correlates of audiovisual asynchrony.

Abstract The Ventriloquist Effect arises when synchronous auditory and visual events occur with spatial discrepancy and the location of the visual event biases the perceived location of the auditory event. The mismatched negativity (MMN) has been shown to be effective in tracking changes in spatial location of both auditory and visual stimuli by examining peaks of standard and deviant difference waves occurring within 200 ms after stimulus presentation. We present an audio visual MMN experiment in which we attempt to induce an auditory MMN by shifting only the location of the visual stimulus. The standard condition consisted of visual and auditory stimuli originating from 0°, -10°, and 10°. The deviant condition held the auditory stimulus in the same location while shifting the visual stimuli to -20° and 20°, 10°, and 10° respectively. Auditory stimuli were presented by a software system for spatial audio reproduction that created two dimensional virtual acoustic scenes and employed head tracking for added robustness. In addition, auditory and visual only conditions were collected to serve as comparisons to the audio visual difference waves. An auditory MMN was successfully induced in the peripheral audio visual condition, supporting other findings that cross-modal processing can illicit changes in the early pre-attentive processing of stimuli.
