The Wallace Lab is interested in providing a more complete understanding of how multisensory processes impact our behaviors and perceptions, in better elucidating the neural substrates for these interactions, and in understanding how multisensory processes develop and are influenced by sensory experience. His team studies these fundamental questions using a multidisciplinary set of approaches, including animal behavior, human psychophysics, neuroimaging (ERP and fMRI) and neurophysiological techniques. Along with their interest in the brain bases for multisensory processes under normal circumstances, they are also interested in examining how multisensory circuits are altered in an array of clinical conditions, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorder and developmental dyslexia.
