comment How come we see a line when there isn't one in this picture?
My guess is it is a rendering artifact. The corner pixels have a different number of same color pixel neighbors from edge pixels, so they are in fact a different color when draw on the screen.

What is supposed to be in the center? Also what format are the pictures in and is there any compression?

comment How valid are reaction times collected from online studies?
@ChristianHummeluhr the EJW citation tells that the variance/jitter of optimally collected RT data is large enough that the additional variance/jitter from online data collection does not matter.

@ChristianHummeluhr I am not really sure what you mean, but I added some more about jitter.

comment Is it conceivable to transmit all sound information in the tactile modality?
From an information theory vantage, probably. Sound, at least as we perceive it needs at most 1500 Kbps, and can be compressed down to less than 64 Kbps. I would be surprised, but don't have a reference, if the combined bandwidth of the entire tactile system was less than 64Kbps. Decoding the information is a very different issue.

comment Dichotic listening tasks and crosstalk
@LarryM. I fixed the links. Cross talk is not a particularly bad thing, unless you want to say the stimulus is only activating a particular cochlea. Panning is in essence just changing the amount of cross talk.

comment Dichotic listening tasks and crosstalk
@LarryM. there will not be any beating if you add enough masking noise, but this of course could screw up your experiment. Why not just spatially separate the sources (see edit)?
