Using high-field (3 Tesla) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), we demonstrate that auditory and somatosensory inputs converge in a subregion of human auditory cortex along the superior temporal gyrus. Further, simultaneous stimulation in both sensory modalities resulted in activity exceeding that predicted by summing the responses to the unisensory inputs, thereby showing multisensory integration in this convergence region. Recently, intracranial recordings in macaque monkeys have… Expand
Auditory, somatosensory, and multisensory insular cortex in the rat.
TLDR
It is proposed that integration of auditory and somatotopically organized somatosensory modalities reported here may play a role in auditory fear conditioning. Expand
Neuronal Oscillations and Multisensory Interaction in Primary Auditory Cortex
TLDR
The timing and laminar profile of the multisensory interactions in A1 indicate that nonspecific thalamic systems may play a key role in the effect and underscore the instrumental role of neuronal oscillations in cortical operations. Expand
Auditory Cortical Neurons Respond to Somatosensory Stimulation
The prevailing hierarchical model of cortical sensory processing holds that early processing is specific to individual modalities and that combination of information from different modalities isExpand
Multisensory connections of monkey auditory cerebral cortex
TLDR
It is possible that the somatosensory and visual modulation of auditory cortex are each mediated by multiple extrinsic sources, and may contribute cross-modal inputs to auditory cortex. Expand
Auditory Frequency Representations in Human Somatosensory Cortex
TLDR
The results demonstrate that auditory frequency representations can be distributed over brain regions traditionally considered to be dedicated to somatosensation, and reveals a number of candidate brain areas that could support general temporal frequency processing and mediate the extensive and robust perceptual interactions between audition and touch. Expand
Multisensory interactions in primate auditory cortex: fMRI and electrophysiology
TLDR
The analysis of the information coding properties of individual neurons is proposed as one way to quantitatively determine whether the representation of the acoustic environment in (primary) auditory cortex indeed benefits from multisensory input. Expand
Multisensory convergence in auditory cortex, I. Cortical connections of the caudal superior temporal plane in macaque monkeys
TLDR
The findings indicate that the caudal medial auditory area may receive somatosensory input from nearby areas along the fundus of the lateral sulcus, and provides additional evidence for the functional specialization of the individual auditory belt areas. Expand
Integration of Touch and Sound in Auditory Cortex
TLDR
It is suggested that multisensory integration occurs early and close to primary sensory areas and--because it occurs in anaesthetized animals--suggests that this integration is mediated by preattentive bottom-up mechanisms. Expand
Single‐unit analysis of somatosensory processing in the core auditory cortex of hearing ferrets
TLDR
It is demonstrated that crossmodal effects in the auditory cortex are not exclusively visual and that somatosensation plays a significant role in modulation of acoustic processing, and indicate thatCrossmodal plasticity following deafness may unmask these existing non‐auditory functions. Expand
Functional Imaging Reveals Visual Modulation of Specific Fields in Auditory Cortex
TLDR
High-resolution imaging of the macaque monkey is exploited to reconcile findings from human imaging with anatomical knowledge from nonhuman primates to reveal multisensory modulation of auditory processing prominently in caudal fields but also at the lowest stages of auditory cortical processing.

Multisensory auditory-somatosensory interactions in early cortical processing revealed by high-density electrical mapping.
TLDR
Both the topography and timing of these interactions are consistent with multisensory integration early in the cortical processing hierarchy, in brain regions traditionally held to be un isensory. Expand
Somatosensory input to auditory association cortex in the macaque monkey.
TLDR
The convergence of somatosensory and auditory inputs in within subregions of macaque auditory cortex is investigated to suggest a potential neural substrate for multisensory integration at an early stage of auditory cortical processing. Expand
Multisensory auditory-visual interactions during early sensory processing in humans: a high-density electrical mapping study.
TLDR
This study examined the timing and topography of cortical auditory-visual interactions using high-density event-related potentials (ERPs) during a simple reaction-time (RT) task, providing compelling evidence that auditory- visual neural interactions give rise to this RT effect. Expand
Response amplification in sensory-specific cortices during crossmodal binding.
TLDR
FMRI data suggest that the perceptual improvements effected by synthesizing matched multisensory inputs are realised by reciprocal amplification of the signal intensity in participating unimodal cortices. Expand
Detection of Audio-Visual Integration Sites in Humans by Application of Electrophysiological Criteria to the BOLD Effect
TLDR
The efficacy of using an analytic approach informed by electrophysiology to identify multisensory integration sites in humans is demonstrated and the particular network of brain areas implicated in these crossmodal integrative processes are suggested to be dependent on the nature of the correspondence between the different sensory inputs.

Auditory-Visual Integration during Multimodal Object Recognition in Humans: A Behavioral and Electrophysiological Study
TLDR
The results indicate that multisensory integration is mediated by flexible, highly adaptive physiological processes that can take place very early in the sensory processing chain and operate in both sensory-specific and nonspecific cortical structures in different ways. Expand
Magnetoencephalographic Correlates of Audiotactile Interaction
TLDR
The relatively high interindividual variability of the observed interaction could indicate that the way subjects perceive the simultaneous presentation of auditory and tactile stimuli differs, which represents potential neural substrates for multisensory integration. Expand
Modulation of human visual cortex by crossmodal spatial attention.
TLDR
Analysis of effective connectivity between brain areas suggests that touch influences unimodal visual cortex via back-projections from multimodal parietal areas, which provides a neural explanation for crossmodal links in spatial attention. Expand

TLDR
The anatomic mechanisms of multisensory convergence are investigated by examining three areas in which convergence occurs, posterior auditory association cortex, superior temporal polysensory area (STP) and ventral intraparietal sulcus area (VIP). Expand

TLDR
The cortical auditory system of primates is divided into at least two processing streams, a spatial stream that originates in the caudal part of the superior temporal gyrus and projects to the parietal cortex, and a pattern or object stream originating in the more anterior portions of the lateral belt.
