Abstract:

The everyday sensory experience of our surroundings consists of a plethora of different types of stimuli, which convey very different qualitative impressions of the world to our senses. Despite the disparity of these sensations, we are nevertheless able to maintain an amazingly coherent and unified percept of our surrounding. Over the last few decades, sensory perception and its neurobiological substrates have been extensively studied. However, until recently, most of this research has focused on only one modality in isolation, thus standing in sharp contrast to how we experience our world. In this talk, I will provide an overview of a series of studies conducted in my laboratory where we explored how the brain integrates multisensory stimuli using methods allowing us to determine rapid neural mechanisms (EEG), to map the cerebral network responsible (fMRI), to determine the behavioral advantage of multisensory integration, as well as to determine how processing in one sensory modality affects our other senses (TMS). The result of these studies will be discussed within the realm of a multilayered and dynamic network responsible for the integration and interpretation of multisensory stimuli.
