Multisensory processes are fundamental in scaffolding perception, cognition, and learning across the lifespan. Currently, it is poorly understood when and how pairs of stimuli from different sensory modalities are integrated rather than processed as separate entities. Multisensory research in humans has largely focused on cataloguing phenomena and their neural correlates. This research has been groundbreaking on several levels. Such notwithstanding, many core mechanisms still remain undetermined. By filling these knowledge gaps, this project will have direct impact on the models of the brain’s functional organization and more accurate application of multisensory processes in education, and rehabilitation.
