LEARNING FROM OWN VS OTHER VOICE BY AIR OR BONE CONDUCTION.
YEAGER, JOY
IN A PAIRED-ASSOCIATE LEARNING EXPERIMENT, THE SUBJECT'S OWN VOICE AND THEN THAT OF ANOTHER WERE HEARD TO TEST THE EFFECTIVENESS OF RECALL OF BOTH PRESENTATIONS. HALF OF THE WORDS FROM EACH VOICE WAS PRESENTED BY AIR-CONDUCTED SOUND TO EARPHONES AND HALF BY OCCLUDED BONE CONDUCTION. THE ORDER OF PRESENTATION OF VOICES, WORD-PAIR HALF-BLOCKS, AND SOUND MEDIA WAS COUNTERBALANCED AMONG SUBJECTS WHO WERE PREVIOUSLY SCREENED FOR NORMAL HEARING. TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED TO DIFFERENTIATE SUBJECTS WHO WERE EITHER "FIELD DEPENDENT" OR "FIELD INDEPENDENT." RESULTS SHOWED THAT RECALL OF MATERIAL WAS NO GREATER WHETHER ONE'S OWN VOICE OR ANOTHER'S WAS USED. SUBJECTS CLASSIFIED AS NORMAL, OR AS "FIELD DEPENDENT," LEARNED ABOUT EQUALLY WELL FROM EITHER VOICE AND SHOWED NO PREFERENCE FOR ONE OVER THE OTHER. IN THE EARLY TRIALS, LEARNING BY AIR CONDUCTION APPEARED SUPERIOR TO THAT BY BONE CONDUCTION. IN LATER TRIALS, THE DIFFERENCE BECAME NONSIGNIFICANT.
