Sensory Modalities Processing in Sensorimotor Tasks Depends on State and Trait Anxiety

Abstract

In the daily life activities, the ability to divide attention between different sensory modalities is essential since we have to cope with tasks that require multisensory integration. An individual has to select the relevant information, and sometimes shifts their attention from one sensory modality to another when one sensory modality is inadequate, absent, or salient. These sensory reweighting mechanisms are needed to maintain an efficient performance. Previous works have suggested that the highly complex attentional system that is needed in such situations could be influenced by affective states, such as anxiety. Indeed, it has been shown that an anxious state influences the efficient functioning of the attentional system. This can result in differences in the processing of sensory modalities. Moreover, recent works have highlighted that the allocation  Corresponding author: Tel/ Fax
