DescriptionWe report an auditory effect of visual performance degradation in a virtual reality (VR) setting. With the presentation of temporally congruent but spatially incongruent sound, we can degrade visual performance significantly. We find that the performance degradation occurs even in the absence of saccades toward the sound source.
