Multisensory Processing


The manner in which information from the different senses is brought together in perception provides a scaffold for cognitive and social development and underpins our perception of an integrated world. We seek to understand the processes by which multisensory information is combined, represented and acted upon. Specifically, we investigate such things as: how the brain combines information to make predictions about the likely actions or intentions of others; how speech (and speech related) gestures relate to the properties of vocal speech and how multisensory processing helps make information processing more robust.
