About this Research Topic
However, many questions remain unresolved. For example, at what age do we develop optimal multisensory integration? How does the brain ‘know’ which stimuli to combine, and which to segregate? What are the principles that govern crossmodal interactions? Does multisensory integration rely solely on the variability of sensory information? Do primary sensory cortices also contribute to multisensory integration? How does multisensory integration influence our sensorimotor interactions?
To take stock of the most recent developments, this Research Topic aims to provide a broad scope of research on multisensory perception and action from different perspectives/approaches and disciplines, including behavioral and neuro-sciences, computational/mathematical modeling, and engineering science. Specifically, the Research Topic will focus on the following topics:
1. Functional and behavioral mechanisms of multisensory perception
2. Neural mechanisms of multisensory coding
3. Multisensory perception and sensorimotor interaction
4. Multisensory applications
For this Research Topic, we welcome contributions in a variety of formats, from original research reports, review, to computational/mathematical modeling papers that can deepen our understanding of multisensory perception and action.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
