Crossmodal Space and Crossmodal Attention by Charles Spence
Book DescriptionMany organisms possess multiple sensory systems, such as vision, hearing, touch, smell, and taste. The possession of such multiple ways of sensing the world offers many benefits. These benefits arise not only because each modality can sense different aspects of the environment, but also because different senses can respond jointly to the same external object or event, thus enriching the overall experience - for example, looking at an individual while listening to them speak. However, combining information from different senses also poses many challenges for the nervous system. In recent years there has been dramatic progress in understanding how information from different sensory modalities gets integrated in order to construct useful representations of external space; and in how such multimodal representations constrain spatial attention. Such progress has involved numerous different disciplines, including neurophysiology, experimental psychology, neurological work with brain-damaged patients, neuroimaging studies, and computational modelling. This volume brings together the leading researchers from all these approaches, to present the first integrative overview of this central topic in cognitive neuroscience.

Perfect Meal, Paperback (October 2014)
The authors of The Perfect Meal examine all of the elements that contribute to the diner's experience of a meal (primarily at a restaurant) and investigate how each of the diner's senses contributes to their overall multisensory experience.
In touch with the future, Hardback (January 2014)
'In Touch With The Future' expores the latest research from cognitive neuroscience on how humans process tactile information. It reviews the scientific knowledge on themes such as tactile memory, tactile awareness, tactile attention, the role of touch in interpersonal and sexual interactions, and the neurological substrates of touch.
Multisensory Development, Hardback (June 2012)
We perceive and understand our environment using many sensory systems-vision, touch, hearing, taste, smell, and proprioception. Yet how do we develop the ability to integrate these senses? This book is unique in exploring this extraordinary feat of human nature. It is an important book for all those in the field of cognitive neuroscience.
Multisensory Driver, Hardback (September 2008)» View all books by Charles Spence
Driver inattention has been identified as one of the leading causes for car accidents. This book focuses on two aspects of driver information-processing: multisensory interactions and the spatial distribution of attention in driving.
