Causal Inference in Multisensory Perception
Perceptual events derive their significance to an animal from their meaning about the world, that is from the information they carry about their causes. The brain should thus be able to efficientlyExpand
Illusions: What you see is what you hear
Vision is believed to dominate our multisensory perception of the world. Here we overturn this established view by showing that auditory information can qualitatively alter the perception of anExpand
Visual illusion induced by sound.
We present the first cross-modal modification of visual perception which involves a phenomenological change in the quality-as opposed to a small, gradual, or quantitative change-of the percept of aExpand
Benefits of multisensory learning
Studies of learning, and in particular perceptual learning, have focused on learning of stimuli consisting of a single sensory modality. However, our experience in the world involves constantExpand
Probability Matching as a Computational Strategy Used in Perception
The question of which strategy is employed in human decision making has been studied extensively in the context of cognitive tasks; however, this question has not been investigated systematically in thecontext of perceptual tasks. Expand
Perception of Body Ownership Is Driven by Bayesian Sensory Inference
Recent studies have shown that human perception of body ownership is highly malleable. A well-known example is the rubber hand illusion (RHI) wherein ownership over a dummy hand is experienced, andExpand
Sound-induced flash illusion as an optimal percept
Recently, it has been shown that visual perception can be radically altered by signals of other modalities. For example, when a single flash is accompanied by multiple auditory beeps, it is oftenExpand
Sound alters activity in human V1 in association with illusory visual perception
We show that activity in retinotopic visual cortex is increased by the presence of concurrent auditory stimulation, irrespective of any illusory perception. Expand
Recalibration of Auditory Space following Milliseconds of Cross-Modal Discrepancy
Basic features of objects and events in the environment such as timing and spatial location are encoded by multiple sensory modalities. This redundancy in sensory coding allows recalibration of oneExpand
Distortions of Subjective Time Perception Within and Across Senses
Background The ability to estimate the passage of time is of fundamental importance for perceptual and cognitive processes. One experience of time is the perception of duration, which is notExpand
