Project Description

Information from various sensory modalities is tightly coupled with each other. The sight of strawberries evokes its sweet taste, listening to vroom-vroom sound instantly conjures images of a motorbike or a car! There is plenty of evidence that humans represent the world by integrating information from multiple sensory modalities. This project aims to tease about the exact nature of these representations and explore how predictable are touch, audio, vision and taste signals are from each other.
