Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) We investigated the effects of listener’s head movement and kinetic feedback on the accuracy of sound localization. The effects were examined under the conditions that their head movement was restricted (study 1) or unrestricted (study 2) on the sound localization training. In both experiments, participants divided into two groups: training group performed the sound localization training with the kinetic feedback, while control group conducted the training with no-feedback. The results indicated that: (1) sound localization learning under active head movements increased the accuracy of sound localization; (2) kinetic feedback facilitated the sound localization during the initial learning phase; and (3) training with kinetic feedback dominantly decreased the rate of vertical localization errors in sound localization performance.
