Eye Movements Indicate Initial Attempts To Process What Humans Hear, ScienceDaily
Excerpts: By mapping eye movements in fractions of a second (...) humans attempt to make sense of what they are hearing through visual cues long before they have heard an entire idea. The finding offers insight into how the mind uses vision to rapidly process information. Psycholinguists know that as humans process language they make many split-second decisions about the words they are hearing. But questions remain about how humans cope with uncertainty at every stage (...). "On the basis of one or two sounds, we saw the participants' eye movements begin to shift. As soon as they identified a word, they began to map it."
