Abstract : Projection of the auditory, vestibular and a part of the somatic system has been shown to overlap extensively in a small cortical, area in the cat, comprising the inferior portions of the anterior ectosylvian and suprasylvian gyri and the compositive gyrus. The responses to each mode of stimulation occur with latencies which suggest that their projection is direct from thalamic relay nuclei. The projection to this area of several sense modalities which have in common their relation to posture and spatial orientation suggest the possibility of a primary cortical area of correlation.
