-In a 2001 study, G. F. Meyer and S. M. Wuerger examined the nature of visual-auditory integration in the perception of motion events. Earlier studies by other researchers had indicated a link between [[Overview of Sensory Systems|visual]] and [[Overview of Sensory Systems|auditory]] information in motion event processing using evidence from neurophysiological data and data from behavioral studies. In the former, it was seen that neurons in the [[Overview of Sensory Systems|superior colliculus]],​ an area of the brain directly between the visual and auditory cortices, responded to stimulation from multiple modalities and that the [[Terms and Definitions|receptive fields]] of these neurons were spatially aligned in all modalities. In the latter category, behavioral studies mentioned by Meyer & Wuerger have shown cross-modal links in both endogenous and exogenous spatial attention for sequential and simultaneous stimuli in both the auditory and visual modalities. ​+In a 2001 study, G.
