Abstract and Keywords

In this review, psychophysical evidence concerning the existence of general principles of cross-modal perceptual organization and multisensory Gestalt grouping is critically evaluated. The focus is on cross-modal perceptual organization and multisensory Gestalten for the spatial senses of audition, vision, and touch. The review is structured around addressing four key questions that run through the literature in this area. The questions are: 1) Does the perceptual organization of stimuli in one sensory modality automatically influence the perceptual organization of stimuli presented in another sensory modality? 2) Does intramodal perceptual grouping modulate the strength of cross-modal perceptual grouping? 3) Do intersensory Gestalten exist? And 4) Can cross-modal correspondences be conceptualized in terms of cross-modal grouping by similarity?

Keywords: cross-modal, perceptual organization, Gestalt
