In order for perception to be effective, many noisy and ambiguous sensory signals across different modalities (for example, vision, audition) must be integrated into stable percepts. This chapter explores dynamic coordination in the integration of sensory information, with an emphasis on why and how the brain integrates sensory signals. It also considers how the brain knows when to integrate signals and when to treat them separately.

Keywords:   perception, sensory signals, dynamic coordination, sensory information, brain
