ABSTRACT: Much knowledge has been gained about how the brain is activated on audiovisual interaction. However, few data was acquired
about the relationship between audiovisual interaction and spatial locations of audiovisual stimuli. Here, we investigated
the multisensory interaction of audiovisual stimuli presented on central and peripheral spatial locations. Firstly, we determined
the maximal eccentricity of peripheral spatial location on where stimuli were presented which was 30°. Second, the results
of audiovisual interaction showed that the interaction of visual and auditory can have dramatic effects on human perception
and performance. Moreover, this effect depended on the spatial locations of presented audiovisual stimuli.
