Barry E. Stein, Terrence R. Stanford, Mark T. Wallace, Vaughan I. William, Wan Jiang, »Crossmodal spatial interactions in subcortical and cortical circuits«, in: Charles Spence, Jon Driver (Hg.), Crossmodal space and crossmodal attention, Oxford 2004

»Despite the creation of a means of segregating information on a sense-by-sense basis, evolution did not eliminate the ability to benefit from the advantages of pooling information across sensory modalities. Rather, it created an interesting duality: some parts of the brain became specialized for dealing with information within individual senses, and others for pooling information across senses.«
»[Converging multisensory information] add depth and complexity to our sensory experiences and, as will be shown below, speed and enhance the accuracy of our judgements of environmental events in a manner that could not have been achieved using only independent channels of sensory information.«
