Paper Highlights
  • Multisensory information is crucial in the context of self-awareness;
  • We investigated 5-month-old infants discrimination of  visual-tactile synchronous and asynchronous stimulation applied to faces;
  • During the first 5 months of life, infants seek redundant multisensory information in order to specify the bodily-self.
