Multisensorisches Wissen

Perception is not a passive reception of sensory stimuli or information, but the active action of an actor in an environment. Senses and memory always work together. Perception must therefore be understood by the sensorimotor activ-ity of the actor. The text deals with issues of multisensory perception and the interaction of the senses in an embodied action. Johannes Engelkamp's multi-modal memory theory is discussed, as is the distinction between simulation and stimulation made by the Chilean neurobiologist Francisco Varela. The mir-ror neurons form a crucial bridge for understanding the multisensory actions of others.
