Cross-Modal Spatial Cueing of Attention Influences Visual Perception.


In: Murray MM, Wallace MT, editors.


The Neural Bases of Multisensory Processes. Boca Raton (FL): CRC Press/Taylor & Francis; 2012. Chapter 26.
Frontiers in Neuroscience.


In this chapter, we review studies that have extended the RT-based chronometric investigation of cross-modal spatial attention by utilizing psychophysical measures that better isolate perceptual-level processes. In addition, neurophysiological and neuroimaging methods have been combined with these psychophysical approaches to identify changes in neural activity that might underlie the cross-modal consequences of spatial attention on perception. These methods have also examined neural activity within the cue–target interval that might reflect supramodal (or modality specific) control of spatial attention and subsequent anticipatory biasing of activity within sensory regions of the cortex.
