Cross Modal Sensory Perception

Cross modal sensory perception

How does cross modal sensory input get processed in the sensory cortex and downstream brain areas ? We are investigating this particularly in the context of Fragile X Syndrome, where hyper arousal and inability to “tune out” irrelevant stimuli is a common symptom,  potentially as a result of abnormal sensory processing. We are using sensory guided parallel behavior in rodents and humans to understand what are the bottom up and top down influences that contribute to cross modal perception ?
