The unity assumption is influenced by exogenous and endogenous factors:

  • degree of discrepancy between cross-modal percepts,
  • active involvement (in proprioception),
  • awareness of discrepancy,
  • expectation,
  • compellingness.

The ``unity assumption'' is the hypothesized unconscious assumption (or the belief) of an observer that stimuli in different modalities representing a single cross-sensory object.
