Garvill, J., and Molander, B. A note on information processing in cross-modal matching. Umeå Psychological Re-.ports No. 95, 1975. - Intra-modal and cross-modal matching of farm was studied. The hypothesis that differences in accuracy between modality conditions found in earlier experiments were due to differences in rate of information pick-up between the visual and tactual modalities was tested. The modality conditions were visual standard or tactual standard and visual comparison or tactual comparison. The subjfects made paired comparisons of three-dimensional "nonsense" objects and were allowed to inspect the stimili for as long as they wanted. The time was measured for the standard object and the comparison object. It was found that the visual modality had a higher rate of information pick-up tharij the tactual modality. However, the differences in accuracy between the modality conditions were not eliminated despite the differences in presentation time. Other possible explanations of the differences in accuracy are discussed.
