Sensory Cue Integration

Julia Trommershäuser, Konrad Kording, and Michael S. Landy


This book provides an introduction into both computational models and experimental paradigms that are concerned with sensory cue integration both within and between sensory modalities. Importantly, across behavioral, electrophysiological, and theoretical approaches, Bayesian statistics is emerging as a common language in which cue-combination problems can be expressed. This book focuses on the emerging probabilistic way of thinking about these problems. These approaches derive from the realization that all our sensors are noisy and moreover are often affected by ambiguity. For example, mechano ... More

Keywords: computational models, experimental paradigms, sensory cue integrations, sensory modalities, Bayesian statistics, cue combination, neural implementation
