Under review. “Induced cross-modal synesthesia and multisensory perception” co-authored with B. Brogaard). Abstract. The integration of information from unisensory cortical areas associated with distinct modalities gives rise to unified conscious experiences. Some types of synesthesia involve aberrant multimodal perception. For example, in sound-color synesthesia a certain sound (the inducer) elicits a specific color (the atypical concurrent). Here we argue that drug-induced synesthesia, which involves multimodal integration, and can be temporarily elicited in both synesthetes and non-synesthetes, provides a unique opportunity to investigate the mechanisms of multimodal integration that gives rise to illusory experiences such as the McGurk effect as well as offer insights into the problem of the unity of consciousness.
