  1. 1. Sensory integration success & failure

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Tamas Jantvik; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technology - Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics; Teknikvetenskap - Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik; Industriell elektronik; Industrial Electronics;

    Abstract : The convergence of sensory signals plays an important role in perception. Two cases of convergence are examined in this thesis by means of modelling; the case when the converging signals are congruent, which leads to combination and an enhancement of perception, and the case when they are incongruent.
