Development of multisensory cortex: Role of experience  

It is becoming increasingly clear that a number of clinical neurologic disorders with a sensory component (e.g., autism spectrum disorder) may have preferential deficits in multisensory processing, and that both diagnostic and remediation strategies founded on a multisensory platform may provide more effective outcomes for individuals suffering with these conditions. This study focuses on characterizing the functional circuitry that forms the basis for cortical multisensory processes.
