Main Focus

In my PhD I investigate how audiovisual spatial integration and its neural basis depend on relative reliability, the perception of unity and attention by using computational models and multivariate pattern analysis of fMRI data.

Neural basis of audiovisual spatial integration

Adaptation to relative reliability in audiovisual spatial integration

Dependence of audiovisual spatial integration on relative reliability and the perception of unity
