The model due to Anastasio and Patton reproduces multi-sensory enhancement.
Deactivating modulatory, cortical input also deactivates multi-sensory enhancement.⇒
Pavlou and Casey model the SC.
They use Hebbian, competitive learning to learn and topographic mapping between modalities.
They also simulate cortical input.⇒
The leaky-integrate-and-fire model due to Rowland and Stein models a single multisensory SC neuron receiving input from a number of sensory, cortical, and sub-cortical sources.
Each of the sources is modeled as a single input to the SC neuron.
Local inhibitory interaction between neurons in multi-sensory trials is modeled by a single time-variant subtractive term which sets in shortly after the actual sensory input, thus not influencing the first phase of the response after stimulus onset.⇒
