Ferrinne Spector, Associate Professor, Psychology Department

Scholarship/Research Interests
"I am interested in multisensory perception - the integration of information across theFerrinne Spector senses. One way to measure this is by pairing attributes across sensory domains (e.g., color to pitch). Multisensory integration may help facilitate learning in an environment in which faces produce meaningful language sounds and large objects make loud noises. By examining which multisensory attributes are paired consistently, we can begin to understand the sensory code by which all sensory information may be translated."
