Interactions between sensory pathways such as the visual and auditory systems are known to occur in the brain, but where they first occur is uncertain. Here, we show a novel multimodal interaction evident at the eardrum. Ear canal microphone measurements in humans (n = 19 ears in 16 subjects) and monkeys (n = 5 ears in 3 subjects) performing a sacc...

... Gaze behavior is a form of active sensing; individuals shift their gaze 3-4 times per second both consciously and unconsciously to gain high resolution information about aspects of a visual scene [1], [2], [3], [4], [5]. Auditory stimuli and internal factors related to personal experience, such as memory, have also been shown to affect eye movements and visual perception [6], [7], [8], [9], [10]. Many researchers have analyzed gaze behaviors of individuals who identify as neurodivergent, and particularly with an autism spectrum condition (ASC) [11] noting differences in gaze behavior particularly in social settings [12], [13], [14], [15], [16], [17], [18]. ...
... Groh and Sparks,30 1992; Boucher et al., 2001;Metzger et al., 2004). Most previous work about how eye 31 movement information is incorporated into auditory processing has focused on cortical 32 and subcortical brain structures Sparks, 1984, 1987a, b;Russo and Bruce, 33 1994; Hartline et al., 1995;Stricanne et al., 1996;Cohen and Andersen, 2000;Groh et 34 al., 2001;Zella et al., 2001;Werner-Reiss et al., 2003;Fu et al., 2004;Populin et al., 35 3 2012; Caruso et al., 2021), but the recent discovery of eye-movement related eardrum 38 oscillations (EMREOs) (Gruters et al., 2018) suggests that the process might be 39 manifest much earlier in the auditory periphery. EMREOs can be thought of as a 40 biomarker of underlying efferent information impacting the internal structures of the ear 41 in association with eye movements. ...
