dc.description.abstractThe aims of the present study are: (1) To develop a theory of sensory interaction which could generate a testable hypothesis concerning the relationship between the magnitude of a given sensory response and an intensity range of accessory stimulation. (2) To test experimentally an hypothesis derived from this theory. On the basis of the experimental literature it seems safe to assume that sensory stimulation applied to one modality can influence the response obtained in a second modality concurrently stimulated. Such heteromodal effects have been reported under a wide variety of experimental conditions, and indicate that both the facilitation and inhibition of a given sensory response are integral aspects of the inter-sensory process. In terms of these findings it seems a reasonable assumption that both the magnitude and direction of intersensory effects are closely related to the intensity level of accessory stimulation.[Truncated]en_US
