Overview

Scientists have traditionally studied the senses in isolation. Consequently, the standard view is that each sense processes its own information separately until, at a higher area in the brain, the senses are combined. Only relatively recently has this view been challenged. Building from existing models, I constructed and tested a multi-level model of multisensory integration using self-organizing maps.

The research was published by Lafayette College in 2010. A copy of the PDF is available here. I presented a poster on the work at the 2010 Annual Society for Neuroscience conference.
