Abstract(in Japanese) (See Japanese page)
Abstract(in English) Emotions and phonemes are perceived by the integration of visual and auditory information. Previous studies have demonstrated that the way of audiovisual integration develops during childhood. To reveal the mechanism of this developmental process, we investigated the gaze pattern of children aged 5 to 12 years, when they were presented with audiovisual video clips in which speakers expressed their emotion or pronounced phonemes through facial and vocal cues. The results showed, though the children’s gaze pattern did not differ across age groups, they judged emotions by weighing vocal cues, and they come to perceive phonemes by taking into account visual information with age, as evidenced by a longer mouth area gaze duration.
