Journal Name: Frontiers in Consciousness Research: Perception-Cognition Interface & Cross-Modal Experiences: Insights into Unified Consciousness Publication Date: Not specified Submission Deadline: October 31, 2013 (Abstracts) September 30, 2014 (final papers) Traditionally cognition and conscious perception as well as its different sense modalities have been examined independently, as divided and different from each other.
