Abstract : The purpose of this study was to more thoroughly determine how spatial disparity effects saccadic reaction times to dual, auditory and visual, stimuli. In addition I sought to find out how spatially disparate the stimuli could be while maintaining evidence for neural summation. I had the long term goal, once I had demonstrated the legitimacy of technique, of mapping fields of multisensory neural summation.
