Abstract
This dissertation has been written at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (Max-Planck-Institut für Biologische Kybernetik) in Tübingen in the department of Prof. Dr. Heinrich H. Bülthoff. The work has universitary support by Prof. Dr. Günther Palm (University of Ulm, Abteilung Neuroinformatik). Main evaluators are Prof. Dr. Günther Palm, Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Becker (University of Ulm, Sektion Neurophysiologie) and Prof. Dr. Heinrich Bülthoff.amp;lt;bramp;gt;amp;lt;bramp;gt; The goal of this thesis was to investigate the integration of different sensory modalities in the perception of self-motion, by using psychophysical methods. Experiments with healthy human participants were to be designed for and performed in the Motion Lab, which is equipped with a simulator platform and projection screen. Results from psychophysical experiments should be used to refine models of the multisensory integration process, with an mphasis on Bayesian (maximum likelihood) integration mechanisms.amp;lt;bramp;gt;amp;lt;bramp;gt; To put the psychophysical experiments into the larger framework of research on multisensory integration in the brain, results of neuroanatomical and neurophysiological experiments on multisensory integration are also reviewed.
