Abstract
Rapid and accurate interaction with the world requires that proper spatial and temporal alignment between sensory modalities be maintained. The introduction of a misalignment (either spatial or temporal) impairs performance on most spatial tasks. For over a century, it has been known that a few minutes of exposure to a spatial misalignment can induce a recalibration of intersensory spatial relationships, a phenomenon called Spatial Adaptation. Here, we present evidence that the sensorimotor system can also adapt to intersensory temporal misalignments, a phenomena that we call Temporal Adaptation. Temporal Adaptation is striking parallel to Spatial Adaptation, and has strong implications for the understanding of spatial cognition and intersensory integration.
