Multisensory Perception and the Coding of Space

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


Vision, audition, and touch all code the space around us, or rather the things that are located in the space around us, in a different way. Yet, together our senses form a coherent spatial representation of our environment. In this chapter we will discuss how space is coded through vision, audition, and touch, and how spatial information from these senses is combined or integrated. We will continue by discussing neuropsychological impairments that affect spatial perception and multisensory integration, and finally how multisensory stimulation may help reduce or overcome some of these impairments.
