Recent studies suggest that multisensory integration does not only occur in higher association cortices but also at early stages of auditory processing, possibly in primary or secondary auditory cortex. Support for such early multisensory influences comes from functional magnetic resonance imaging experiments in humans and monkeys. However we argue that the current understanding of neurovascular coupling and of the neuronal basis underlying the imaging signal does not permit the direct… Expand
Auditory–Visual Multisensory Interactions in Humans: Timing, Topography, Directionality, and Sources
TLDR
It is demonstrated how neurophysiologic bases of multisensory interactions can be noninvasively identified in humans, allowing for a synthesis across imaging methods on the one hand and species on the other. Expand
Integrating information from different senses in the auditory cortex
TLDR
The new, converging evidence that multiplexing of neural signals may play a key role in informatively encoding and integrating signals in auditory cortex across multiple sensory modalities is discussed. Expand
The multisensory function of primary visual cortex in humans
It has been nearly ten years since Ghazanfar and Schroeder (2006) proposed that the neocortex is essentially multisensory in nature. However, it is only recently that sufficient and hard evidenceExpand
The multisensory function of the human primary visual cortex
TLDR
Evidence that activity within the human primary visual cortex plays an active role in multisensory processes and directly impacts behavioural outcome is reviewed, and the provocative claim of Ghazanfar and Schroeder (2006) that the whole of neocortex is mult isensory in function is considered established. Expand
Visual modulation of spectrotemporal receptive fields in mouse auditory cortex
TLDR
The results suggest visual information in A1 is predominantly carried by deep layer inputs and influences sound encoding across cortical layers, and that these influences independently impact qualitatively distinct responses to sound. Expand
The spatio‐temporal profile of multisensory integration
TLDR
It is proposed that this automatic interaction occurs at the level of the thalamus and might signify a first step of audiovisual interplay necessary for visually induced perceptual enhancement of auditory perception. Expand
Intracortical depth analyses of frequency-sensitive regions of human auditory cortex using 7TfMRI
TLDR
The results demonstrate that when the major physiological and anatomical biases imparted by the vasculature are controlled, functional mapping of human ACs becomes more consistent from subject to subject than previously thought. 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
Possible anatomical pathways for short-latency multisensory integration processes in primary sensory cortices
TLDR
Two types of anatomical pathways are described and quantify that possibly underlie short-latency multisensory integration processes in the primary auditory, somatosensory, and visual cortex of Mongolian gerbils, and V1, where V1 provides the most pronounced feedforward-type outputs and receives most pronounced feedback-type inputs.

Neural convergence and divergence in the mammalian cerebral cortex: From experimental neuroanatomy to functional neuroimaging
TLDR
The evidence reviewed here suggests the need for further in‐depth exploration of the intricate connectivity of the mammalian cerebral cortex in experimental neuroanatomical studies, as well as new evidence that has accumulated from studies of functional neuroimaging that the integration of information across the auditory, visual, and somatosensory–motor modalities proceeds in a content‐rich manner.

Multisensory interactions within human primary cortices revealed by BOLD dynamics.
TLDR
Using event-related fMRI, it is observed that simple auditory stimuli activated primary visual cortices and that simple visual stimuli activatedPrimary auditory cortices, indicative of multisensory convergence. 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.

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
Physiological and Anatomical Evidence for Multisensory Interactions in Auditory Cortex
TLDR
Single-unit recordings and estimates of mutual information that visual stimuli can influence the activity of units in the auditory cortex of anesthetized ferrets demonstrate that multisensory convergence and integration are features common to all auditory cortical areas but are especially prevalent in higher areas. Expand
Visual modulation of neurons in auditory cortex.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that visual stimuli can modulate the firing of neurons in auditory cortex in a manner that depends on stimulus efficacy and timing, and these neurons meet the criteria for sensory integration and provide the auditory modality with multisensory contextual information about co-occurring environmental events.

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
Human–simian correspondence in the early cortical processing of multisensory cues
TLDR
The correspondence between specific findings in humans and monkeys is reviewed, focusing on two areas, posterior auditory association cortex and posterior parietal visual association cortex, and the importance of human–simian homology in the study of the multisensory components of primate communication is considered.

Auditory-visual interaction in single cells in the cortex of the superior temporal sulcus and the orbital frontal cortex of the macaque monkey
TLDR
The results indicate that neurons in both regions show auditory-visual interactions and that at least some of these interactions are due to convergence at the cortical cell. Expand
Interactions between the Superior Temporal Sulcus and Auditory Cortex Mediate Dynamic Face/Voice Integration in Rhesus Monkeys
TLDR
The data suggest that the integration of faces and voices is mediated at least in part by neuronal cooperation between auditory cortex and the STS and that interactions between these structures are a fast and efficient way of dealing with the multisensory communication signals. Expand
Multisensory Integration of Dynamic Faces and Voices in Rhesus Monkey Auditory Cortex
TLDR
It is demonstrated unequivocally that the primate auditory cortex integrates facial and vocal signals through enhancement and suppression of field potentials in both the core and lateral belt regions of the auditory cortex in awake behaving rhesus monkeys. Expand
