Dehner et al. speculate that the inhibitory influence of FAES activity on SIV activity is connected to modality-specific attention: According to that hypothesis, an auditory stimulus which leads to strong FAES activity will suppress activity in FAES and thus block out cortical somatosensory input to the SC.

The responses of some visuo-vestibular cells were enhanced, that of others was depressed by combined visuo-vestibular cues.

Kadunce et al. found cross-modality depression less often than within-modality depression.

Kadunce et al. found that for the majority of neurons in which a stimulus in one modality could lead to depression in another modality that depression was one-way: Stimuli in the second modality did not depress responses to stimuli in the first.

Kadunce et al. found that SC neurons are very inhomogeneous wrt. to presence and size of suppressive zones.
