Significance: Rohe and Noppeney show that multisensory interactions are pervasive but governed by distinct computational principles across the cortical hierarchy. Critically, only parietal cortices integrated signals weighted by their bottom-up sensory reliabilities and top-down task relevance into multisensory spatial priority maps.
