Computational Models of Multisensory Integration in the Cat Superior Colliculus

This chapter discusses four models of the integration of visual and auditory cues in the cat superior colliculus. Models 1–3 are analytical models, each incorporating elements of the former but also evolving in an attempt to better incorporate the aforementioned empirical observations to explain multisensory enhancement. Model 4, a network model, incorporates the same key empirical observations as does Model 3, but with an entirely different implementation and also accounts for multisensory depression.

Keywords: visual cues; auditory cues; superior colliculus; cue integration
