“Representational Momentum” (RM) is a mislocalization of the endpoint of a moving target in the direction of motion. In vision, RM has been shown to increase with target velocity. In audition, however, the effect of target velocity is unclear. Using a perceptual paradigm with moving broadband noise targets in Virtual Auditory Space resulted in a linear increase in RM from 0.9° to 2.3° for an increase in target velocity from 25°/s to 100°/s. Accounting for the effect of eye position also reduced variance. These results suggest that RM may be the result of similar underlying mechanisms in both modalities.
