Abstract
The last few years have seen a rapid growth of interest in issues related to the temporal aspects of multisensory perception. We will highlight recent research that has investigated people's sensitivity to temporal asynchrony for both simple (eg, beeps, flashes, punctuate touch, laser pain) and more complex stimuli (eg, speech, music, object action video clips) using both simultaneity and temporal order judgment tasks. We will review some of the latest findings to have emerged from our laboratory looking at how the brain responds (ie, adapts) to various kinds of on-going asynchronous stimulation (again using both simple and complex stimuli). Recent findings demonstrating the effect of the "unity effect" on multisensory temporal perception will be outlined, as will research showing that synesthetic correspondences can modulate multisensory integration (both temporal and spatial) in normal participants.
