Multisensory integration in synesthesia

Multisensory integration in synesthesia

About This Video

Every person's brain has to integrate information from several different senses? This multisensory perception is different from synesthesia - existing sensory information is processed together, unlike synesthetic experiences, where unrelated modalities are activated. However, multisensory perception might offer a clue into the processing of information in people who have synesthesia. Dr. Ward presents some views on the mechanisms behind synesthesia in this context.
