This chapter examines the development of multimodal perception and processing in humans and other species, and the major role that sensory experience plays during early life in linking modality-specific inputs to form a coherent multisensory representation of the environment. At a neurophysiological level, the developmental mechanisms involved in the synthesis of multisensory spatial information in the superior colliculus (SC), a midbrain structure involved in the control of target-directed orienting movements, have received the most attention.
