Abstract

The aims of the present study are:1 To develop a theory of sensory interactionwhich could generate a testable hypothesisconcerning the relationship between themagnitude of a given sensory response andan intensity range of accessory stimulation.2 To test experimentally an hypothesis derived from this theory.On the basis of the experimental literature it seemssafe to assume that sensory stimulation applied to onemodality can influence the response obtained in a secondmodality concurrently stimulated. Such heteromodal effectshave been reported under a wide variety of experimentalconditions, and indicate that both the facilitation andinhibition of a given sensory response are integral aspectsof the inter-sensory process. In terms of these findings itseems a reasonable assumption that both the magnitude anddirection of intersensory effects are closely related to theintensity level of accessory stimulation.TruncatedRights
