Molander, B., and Garvill, J. Response-induced imagery in eros s-modal transfer of form discrimination. Umeå Psychological Reports No. 127, 1977. - In a cross-modal transfer experiment subjects learned to associate forais varying in imagery value with three-dimensional objects which were presented either visually or tactually.After training in one modality transfer was tested in the other modality. It was hypothesized that verbal labels facilitate tactual stimulus encoding more than visual stimulus encoding and that this facilitation is more pronounced with high-imagery labels as compared to low-imagery labels. The results showed that transfer in the tactual-visual order was superior to transfer in the visual-tactual order and that the size of this asynmetry was the same for both types of labels. These results are taken to indicate that imagery is of minor importance as a mediating process in the cross-modal transfer of form discrimination.
