SUMMARY
Responses of multisensory neurons to combinations
of sensory cues are generally enhanced or de-
pressed relative to single cues presented alone,
but the rules that govern these interactions have
remained unclear. We examined integration of visual
and vestibular self-motion cues in macaque area
MSTd in response to unimodal as well as congruent
and conflicting bimodal stimuli in order to evaluate
hypothetical combination rules employed by multi-
