Our neural systems are bombarded by inputs from different channels: visual, auditory, vestibular (sense of balance) … When the inputs are consistent, our brains combine them to give a coherent picture of the environment. When the inputs are different, our brains differentiate that they are independent. We have obtained data from neurons in the monkeys’ brains from our collaborator, but surprisingly it shows many puzzling behaviors. We are interested in discovering the story behind.
