Seeing and Perceiving 23 (2010) 435–462 brill.nl/sp Sensory Integration Across Modalities: How Kinaesthesia Integrates with Vision in Visual Orientation Discrimination ∗ Michel Treisman 1 , ∗∗ and Martin Lages 2 1 Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Oxford, Oxford OX1 3UD, UK 2 Department of Psychology, University of Glasgow, 58 Hillhead Street, Glasgow, G12 8QB, Scotland, UK Received 3 July 2009; accepted 14 July 2010 Abstract Stimuli in one modality can affect the appearance and discriminability of stimuli in another, but how they do so is not well understood. Here we propose a theory of the integration of sensory information across modalities. This is based on criterion setting theory (CST; Treisman and Williams, 1984), an extension of signal detection theory which models the setting and adjustment of decision criteria. The theory of sensory integration based on CST (CST-SI) offers an account of cross-modal effects on sensory decision-making; here we consider its application to orientation anisotropy. In this case, CST-SI postulates that the postural senses are concerned with the relations between momentary body posture and the cardinal dimensions of space, vertical and horizontal, and that they also contribute to stabilizing perception of the cardinal orienta- tions in vision through
