The brain integrates object information from multiple sensory systems to form a unique representation of our environment. Temporal synchrony and spatial coincidence are important factors for multisensory integration, indicating that the multisensory signals come from a common source. Spatial separations can lead to a decline of visual – haptic integration (Gepshtein et al, 2005 Journal of Vision 5 1013–1023). Here we tested whether prior knowledge that two signals arise from the same object can… Expand
