Multisensory representation of frequency across audition and touch: high density electrical mapping reveals early sensory-perceptual coupling.

The frequency of environmental vibrations is sampled by two of the major sensory systems, audition and touch, notwithstanding that these signals are transduced through very different physical media and entirely separate sensory epithelia. Psychophysical studies have shown that manipulating frequency in audition or touch can have a significant cross-sensory… CONTINUE READING
