We investigated the time-course and scalp topography of multisensory interactions between simultaneous auditory and somatosensory stimulation in humans. Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded from 64 scalp electrodes while subjects were presented with auditory-alone stimulation (1000-Hz tones), somatosensory-alone stimulation (median nerve electrical pulses), and simultaneous auditory-somatosensory (AS) combined stimulation. Interaction effects were assessed by comparing the responses to… Expand
Multisensory integration in children: A preliminary ERP study
TLDR
The spatio-temporal scalp distribution of multisensory auditory-somatosensory integration was investigated in typically developing children ages 6-13 and suggests that children exhibit differential processing of mult isensory compared to unisensor stimuli, as has previously been reported in adults.

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
Auditory-somatosensory multisensory processing in auditory association cortex: an fMRI study.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that auditory and somatosensory inputs converge in a subregion of human auditory cortex along the superior temporal gyrus, and the multisensory region identified in the present investigation may be the human homologue of CM. Expand
Effect of acceleration of auditory inputs on the primary somatosensory cortex in humans
TLDR
Somatosensory–auditory interaction, such as input to the area 3b from the thalamus, occurred during the early stages of synaptic transmission, and acceleration of information processing through the cross-modal interaction seemed to be partly due to faster processing in the sensory cortex. Expand

TLDR
It is speculated that the subtracted positive and negative peaks reflect different cognitive processing of bimodal and bifocal sensory information. 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
Occipital Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation Has Opposing Effects on Visual and Auditory Stimulus Detection: Implications for Multisensory Interactions
TLDR
The collective data support a mechanism of early auditory–visual interactions that is mediated by auditory-driven sensitivity changes in visual neurons that coincide in time with the initial volleys of visual input. 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
Auditory–somatosensory multisensory interactions in front and rear space
TLDR
A significant facilitation of reaction times, exceeding that predicted by probability summation, was obtained following multisensory stimulation, irrespective of whether the stimuli were in spatial register or not, which is interpreted in terms of the likely RF organization of previously identified auditory-somatosensory brain regions.

Effects of visual and auditory stimulation on somatosensory evoked magnetic fields
TLDR
Changes in waveform by visual and auditory stimulation are thought to be due to the effects of the activation of polymodal neurons, which receive not only somatosensory but also visual and/ or auditory inputs, in areas 5 and/or 7 as well as in the medial superior temporal region (MST) and superior temporal sulcus (STS). Expand
Multisensory convergence and integration in the neostriatum and globus pallidus of the rat
TLDR
The response properties and anatomical connectivity of CPu and GP neurons suggest that the observed multisensory integrative effects may be used to facilitate motor responses to low intensity stimuli. Expand
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
Interactions of acoustic and somatosensory evoked responses in a polysensory cortex of the cat.
Interactions of acoustic and somatosensory evoked potentials were studied in the anterior suprasylvian gyrus of the cat. The interactions showed dynamic changes and were susceptible to differentExpand
Dynamic interactions of evoked potentials in a polysensory cortex of the cat
TLDR
The authors suggest that the interactions of acoustic and somatosensory responses are mediated by interneurons (inhibitory and/or excitatory) and particular stimulus situations and drugs are able to modify the equilibrium between excitatories and inhibitory subsystems. Expand
Visual, auditory, and somatosensory convergence on cells in superior colliculus results in multisensory integration.
TLDR
Data show that multisensory convergence provides the descending efferent cells of the SC with a dynamic response character, which can vary in response to the particular complex of stimuli present in the environment at any given moment. Expand
Ventral intraparietal area of the macaque: congruent visual and somatic response properties.
TLDR
The large proportion of bimodal tactile and visual neurons with congruent response properties in area VIP indicates that there are important functional differences between area VIP and other dorsal stream areas involved in the analysis of motion. Expand
Neuronal activity of somatosensory cortex in a cross-modal (visuo-haptic) memory task
TLDR
These findings suggest that units in somatosensory cortex react to visual stimuli behaviorally associated with tactile information and suggest that some of these neurons are involved in short-term active memory and may be part of cross-modal memory networks. Expand
Vibration-induced auditory-cortex activation in a congenitally deaf adult
TLDR
It is shown that vibrotactile stimuli, applied on the palm and fingers of a congenitally deaf adult, activated his auditory cortices and recorded magnetoencephalographic signals indicated that the auditory Cortices were able to discriminate between the applied 180 Hz and 250 Hz vibration frequencies. Expand
Mechanisms of within- and cross-modality suppression in the superior colliculus.
TLDR
It appears that cross-modality interactions require the convergence of two or more modality-specific inputs onto the same SC neuron and that the expression of these interactions depends on the internal circuitry of the SC. Expand
