A Putative Model of Multisensory Object Representation
A putative model is proposed in which LOtv, a subregion of LOC, contains a modality-independent representation of geometric shape that can be accessed either bottom-up from direct sensory inputs or top-down from frontoparietal regions, and it is suggested that such access is modulated by object familiarity.
Cross-Modal Object Recognition Is Viewpoint-Independent
The viewpoint-independence of cross-modal object identification points to its mediation by a high-level abstract representation, and the correlation between spatial imagery scores and cross- modal performance suggest that construction of this high- level representation is linked to the ability to perform spatial transformations.
Vision and Touch: Multiple or Multisensory Representations of Objects?
The weight of evidence suggests the existence of a multisensory representation, spatial in format, and flexibly accessible by both bottom — up and top — down inputs, although efficient comparison between modality-specific representations cannot entirely be ruled out.
Mental representation in visual/haptic crossmodal memory: evidence from interference effects
The results suggest that representations of unfamiliar objects are primarily visual but that crossmodal memory for familiar objects may rely on a network of different representations.
Synesthesia strengthens sound‐symbolic cross‐modal correspondences
It is concluded that synesthesia heightens universally experienced cross‐modal correspondences, but only when these involve sound symbolism, which is only partly consistent with the idea thatsynesthesia is a high‐level, post‐perceptual phenomenon, with spillover of the abilities of synesthetes into domains outside their synesthesias.
