Perception of relative timing for signals arising from different sensory modalities depends on the recent history of experienced asynchrony between the signals. Recent findings suggest that the changes in perceived relative timing following asynchrony exposure parallel the perceptual changes caused by adaptation to non-temporal attributes. In both cases, previous sensory stimulation changes discriminability and briefly presented adaptors are
sufficient to produce perceptual changes that, functionally,
can be consistent with repulsion and recalibration. Furthermore, a new class of after-effects in which reports are biased in the direction of the adaptor also occur for
both temporal and non-temporal attributes. Computationally,
the effects of previous sensory stimulation on behavior have
been assessed using Bayesian and population code models.
