Disintegration of Multisensory Signals from the Real Hand Reduces Default Limb Self-Attribution: An fMRI Study
TLDR
The results elucidate the neural bases of the integration of multisensory hand signals according to basic spatiotemporal principles and demonstrate that the disintegration of these signals leads to “disownership” of the seen real hand.
Causal Inference in the Multisensory Brain
Multisensory integration and neuroplasticity in the human cerebral cortex
TLDR
The evidence for interactions of multisensory processes and brain plasticity is discussed, an outlook on promising clinical applications and open questions are given and a picture is given of how information from the different senses is integrated.
MULTIMODAL BRAIN NETWORKS: INTEGRATION BY SYNCHRONIZATION
TLDR
A general theory of how functional coupling is implemented by synchronization of the neural activity in the relevant brain areas at specific frequencies is described, and examples of empirical work in audio-visual speech perception and cross-modal attention orienting are given to support the theory.
Causal inference in the multisensory brain
TLDR
The results reconcile previous computational accounts of multisensory perception by showing that prefrontal cortex guides flexible integrative behaviour based on candidate representations established in sensory and association cortices, thereby framing multisENSory integration in the generalised context of adaptive behaviour.

The Handbook of Multisensory Processing
TLDR
This landmark reference work brings together for the first time in one volume the most recent research from different areas of the emerging field of multisensory integration with broad underlying principles that govern this interaction, regardless of the specific senses involved.
Crossmodal Space and Crossmodal Attention
TLDR
This work presents neuropsychological evidence for multimodal representations of space near specific body parts and exogenous spatial-cuing studies of human crossmodal attention and multisensory integration.
Combined spatial and temporal imaging of brain activity during visual selective attention in humans
TLDR
Together neuroimaging and e.r.p. recording showed that visual inputs from attended locations receive enhanced processing in the extrastriate cortex (fusiform gyrus) at 80–130 ms after stimulus onset, which reinforces early selection models of attention.
Grabbing your ear: rapid auditory-somatosensory multisensory interactions in low-level sensory cortices are not constrained by stimulus alignment.
TLDR
Psychophysical and electrophysiological indices are used to show that auditory-somatosensory interactions in humans occur via the same early sensory mechanism both when stimuli are in and out of spatial register, and across wide peripersonal spatial separations remarkably early in sensory processing and in cortical regions traditionally considered unisensory.
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.
