Multisensory (Auditory/Visual) Processing

Multisensory processing refers to the ways in which the brain and nervous system as a whole combines information from different sensory modalities—sight, sound, touch, smell, self-motion, taste—into a meaningful, coherent perceptual experience. Different sensory modalities, e.g., vision and hearing, interact with one another and can alter the other’s processing. Research in multisensory processing explores typical and atypical processes, including processes in individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
