Multisensory integration, also known as multimodal integration, is the study of how information from the different sensory modalities (such as sight, sound, touch, smell, self-motion, and taste) may be integrated by the nervous system. A coherent representation of objects combining modalities enables animals to have meaningful perceptual experiences. “This is a good book concerning the neurophysiology and psychophysics of somatosensation in animal models and humans. The role of sensory processing in neuropsychiatric conditions such as depression, obsessive compulsive disorders, and schizophrenia is complete. The cortical mapping using EEG, population recordings with fMRI, and grids is Format: Paperback.
Animal Psychophysics: the design and conduct of sensory experiments In May of , the contributors to this book gathered at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor for three days to talk about their work in the behavioral analysis of animal sensory function and to share their research experiences in the laboratory with particular emphasis. Similarly, a somatosensory stimulus (S′), placed outside its RF borders, substantially reduced the neuron's response to an excitatory auditory stimulus (A) (right column). B: presence of within-modality suppression in the auditory (left) and somatosensory (right) modalities was .
Individual chapters address; the response of mechanoreceptors to stimuli (including movement and shape), the role of the somatosensory cortex in processing tactile information, the psychophysics and neurophysiology of the detection and categorisation of somesthetic stimuli, perceptual constancy, recent findings in regard to short term and long. fundamentals of sensory perception Download fundamentals of sensory perception or read online books in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, and Mobi Format.

In a regression analysis, the next step would typically be to formulate linear and nonlinear models as hypothetical links between the neural population responses, Ni, and subjects’ responses, ri, selecting between the models with some measure of Cited by: We review recent work on multisensory integration, focusing on experiments that bridge single-cell electrophysiology, psychophysics, and computational principles.
These studies show that multisensory (visual–vestibular) neurons can account for near-optimal cue integration during the perception of by: Neurophysiology is the study of the functional properties of neurons, glia, and networks.
Historically it has been dominated by electrophysiology—the electrical recording of neuronal events ranging from the molar (the electroencephalogram, EEG) to the cellular (intracellular recording of.

Recent evidence suggests that the perception of angina is correlated with central nervous system activity encoding cardiac injury. Noxious cardiac stimuli evoke activity in sympathetic afferent nerves (Foreman et al.
), in ascending spinal pathways (spinothalamic (STT) and dorsal column (DC) pathways) and in cells of the principal sensory. Recent evidence suggests that the perception of angina is correlated with central nervous system activity encoding cardiac injury.

Introduction. Somatosensory perception plays a central role in the early stages of human development. Among all sensory systems, the tactile sense develops earliest, and somatosensory responses can be detected in utero as early as 8 weeks gestational age (Montagu ), with cortical responses showing measurable maturation during the preterm-term period (Pihko and Lauronen ).

The development of “inner psychophysics” led through the works of Delboeuf, Solomons, Jastrow, and Thurstone to modern signal detection theory.
A third line of research, devoted to the question of what was meant by the “measurement” of sensation strength, stemmed from the criticism of Fechner's work by von Kries () and others.
