Special Colloquium Multisensory interactions and plasticity – shooting hidden assumptions, revealing postdictive aspects
Event Date:

Abstract - Multisensory psychophysics and neuroscience have bloomed in the last several decades. In this talk, I first aim to give a critical review of the field by a list of commonly-accepted propositions/beliefs and provide (at least partially) counterevidence from our home-based laboratory. Some of such 'commonsensical' beliefs and counterevidence are as the following:
