Multisensory learning: from experimental psychology to animal training

Abstract:

Stimuli and events that animals have to learn about in both their natural environments and in modern environments, such as our homes and farms, are often “multisensory,” i.e., they usually occur in more than one sensory modality. There are studies in humans and animals showing that stimuli that are multisensory are learned more quickly than stimuli presented in just a single sensory modality. My aim is to highlight how animals can combine information from several sensory modalities simultaneously, and show how using multisensory stimuli in training can enhance an animal's ability to learn new behaviors.
