 Abstract: Sensory neurobiology is traditionally investigated one modality at a time, though it has long been known that real world behaviour is mediated by integrating information from multiple sensory sources. A number of recent results suggest that the neocortical underpinnings of this multisensory integration reach beyond association cortices and into early sensory cortical areas. This symposium will explore the role of multiple senses in driving behavior and how the integration of multiple senses is mediated by neocortical operations in both human and nonhuman primates. Four experts will be brought together to present their recent work and discuss how understanding multisensory integration sheds light on fundamental questions related to sensory processing and large-scale interactions in the brain. The proposed speakers investigate this phenomenon using complementary methods—from fMRI and EEG to electrophysiology and behavior—and using complementary data from both humans and monkeys. Together, they will show that the pervasiveness of multisensory influences on sensory perception and on all levels of cortical processing will force neurobiologists to reconsider the practice of thinking about brain and behavior in unisensory terms.
