File Information

Humans combine redundant multisensory estimates into a coherent multimodal percept. Experiments in cue integration have shown for many modality pairs and perceptual tasks that multisensory information is fused in a statistically optimal manner: Perceptual judgments take the unimodal sensory reliability into consideration and combine the senses according to the rules of Maximum Likelihood Estimation to maximize overall perceptual precision.
This toolbox, created by Loes van Dam and Marieke Rohde, serves as a tool for analysing psychophysical data in terms of whether or not such statistically optimal integration of the senses occurs. The toolbox expects both unimodal (single cue) as bimodal (multiple cue) psychophysical data to perform this analysis. Further information on how to use the toolbox can be found in the file "toolbox_documentation.pdf" located inside the toolbox folder.
The principles behind optimal multisensory integration and how to measure it are explained in the following paper:
