Co-activation of cortical systems may reflect interactive network coupling. Convento et al. show that transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) targeting somatosensory cortex selectively impairs auditory perception depending on modality-and feature-based attention. Selective attention appears to gate crossmodal coupling between sensory systems.
