Multi-sensory processing facilitates perception but direct perception of global invariants remains unproven

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (6):891-892 (2004)
Abstract
The existence of sensory convergence does not establish that the senses function as a single unified perceptual system. Reality is fully specified only by a one:many mapping onto the totality of energy arrays, and these provide alternative frames of reference for movement. It is therefore possible that higher order crossmodal relationships are detected by skilled perceivers, but this has not been confirmed empirically.
