Biological Motion and Multisensory Integration: The Role of the Superior Temporal Sulcus
This chapter presents evidence that the superior temporal sulcus(STS)is a critical brain area for processing biological motion. It also presents evidence showing the essential role of the STS in multisensory integration. Both biological motion and multisensory integration require combining information from different processing streams. The STS may be specialized for this computational role, and is likely to play an important role in social interactions, which often require integration of a diverse set of environmental cues.
