Much of the research on multisensory or multimodal integration has been directed toward (1) learning what neurons or regions of the brain are specialized for responding to objects that can stimulate more than one sensory modality (multiple modality objects), (2) determining the functional properties of multisensory neurons and inferring their roles in behavior, and (3) determining how structural properties of such neurons may account for their modality-integrating function.
