This chapter focuses on the issue of whether stimulation at around the same place and time, in more than one sensory modality, has any effects on perceptual processing and/or on covert spatial attention in humans. Topics discussed include exogenous spatial-cuing paradigms, initial studies of exogenous crossmodal spatial cuing, crossmodal cuing effects in speeded orthogonal spatial-cuing tasks, crossmodal cuing effects revealed by speeded 'implicit spatial discrimination' go/no-go tasks, and combined behavioural and electrophysiological evidence for visual-upon-auditory exogenous crossmodal spatial influences.
