*the Neural Bases of Multisensory Proce - 11 edition

*the Neural Bases of Multisensory Proce (ISBN10: 1439812179; ISBN13: 9781439812174)
ISBN13: 978-1439812174
ISBN10: 1439812179

Summary: It has become accepted in the neuroscience community that perception and performance are quintessentially multisensory by nature. Using the full palette of modern brain imaging and neuroscience methods, The Neural Bases of Multisensory Processes details current understanding in the neural bases for these phenomena as studied across species, stages of development, and clinical statuses.Organized thematically into nine sub-sections, the book is a collection of contributions by leading scientists i
n the field. Chapters build generally from basic to applied, allowing readers to ascertain how fundamental science informs the clinical and applied sciences.Topics discussed include:Anatomy, essential for understanding the neural substrates of multisensory processingNeurophysiological bases and how multisensory stimuli can dramatically change the encoding processes for sensory informationCombinatorial principles and modeling, focusing on efforts to gain a better mechanistic handle on multisensory operations and their network dynamicsDevelopment and plasticityClinical manifestations and how perception and action are affected by altered sensory experienceAttention and spatial representationsThe last sections of the book focus on naturalistic multisensory processes in three separate contexts: motion signals, multisensory contributions to the perception and generation of communication signals, and how the perception of flavor is generated. The text provides a solid introduction for newcomers and a strong overview of the current state of the field for experts.
