  • Within the realm of perception, the phrase cross-modal correspondences refers to consistent associations between features in two different sensory domains, such as the fact that people commonly associate low-pitched tones with larger visual images and high-pitched tones with smaller visual images. These cross-modal correspondences play an important role in helping our brains solve the multisensory binding problem, that is, deciding what information from one domain to combine with information… CONTINUE READING
