We live in a “multisensory” world Information can be processed on a modality- specific basis Information converges and is integrated in the brain Performance enhancement is larger for multisensory than unisensory stimuli

Unisensory Brain Regions Brodmann Areas http://spot.colorado.edu/~dubin/talks/brodmann/brodmann.html Do the unisensory cortices interact? How does attention modulate unisensory activity? Are unisensory interactions altered in dyslexia?
