Multisensory functional magnetic resonance imaging: a future perspective

Rainer Goebel, Nienke van Atteveldt

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review


Advances in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) technology and analytic tools provide a powerful approach to unravel how the human brain combines the different sensory systems. In this perspective, we outline promising future directions of fMRI to make optimal use of its strengths in multisensory research, and to meet its weaker sides by combining it with other imaging modalities and computational modeling.
