FIGURE 4.7. Multisensory interactions in bimodal neurons can be evaluated by statistical (paired t-test between best unimodal and combined responses) or by summative (combined response exceeds sum of both unimodal responses) methods.

FIGURE 4.7

Multisensory interactions in bimodal neurons can be evaluated by statistical (paired t-test between best unimodal and combined responses) or by summative (combined response exceeds sum of both unimodal responses) methods. For each area, fewer combined responses met these criteria using summative rather than statistical methods. However, only in SC was integration (by either method) achieved by >50 of neurons.
