Garvill,J., and Malandar, B. Intra-modal and cross-mcxåal accuracy in a farm discrimination task* thieå Psychological Reports, No, 11, 1969. - Intra-modal and cross-modal d iscrimnation was compared under two kinds of presentation either simultaneous ar successive. The modalities were vision and touch and the stimili three-dixrensicoal "nonsense" objects. The intta-modal conditions were expected to result in higher accuracy than the croBSHBßdal ocndit&ans. The asymmetric transfer effect (i.e. touch before vision better than vision before touch) usually found in experiments on cross-modal transfer, but not in experiments cai cross-modal matching, was expected to occur under the condition of successive presentation at least. Hie method was paired comparisons and the results showed higher aoeuraoy fee the intra-modal conditions as ccrapared to the cross-modal conditions. The expected asymmetric effect was not found. Differences between experiments cai cross-mcdal transfer and experiments en cross-modal matching are discussed.
