-As discussed in the [[feature binding]] section, different features within the same modality are linked together in order to form a coherent representation of a stimulus. However, not only do features within a modality need to be linked, but information across ​different ​modalities are also integrated in a fashion that allows for a coherent and comprehensive representation of the stimulus. Sometimes these multi-modal integrations are beneficial, and sometimes they create confusing and sometimes nonsensical interactions,​ as in [[synaesthesia]] and the [[McGurk Effect]]. Check out the links below for specific multi-modal interactions.+As discussed in the [[feature binding]] section, different features within the same modality are linked together in order to form a coherent representation of a stimulus.
