Some Bases for Crossmodal Facilitation in Numerosity Judgments.
Newman, Slater E.; And Others
Two experiments were conducted with 80 college students to examine factors associated with the crossmodal facilitation of learning Braille symbols when the visual modality is utilized. In Experiment 1 subjects using the haptic mode were informed of both the structure of the braille cell and the range of dot numerosity of the symbols to be employed. Haptic subjects given this information did as well as subjects who studied the symbols visually. Experiment 2 attempted to determined which of the two kinds of information was the basis for the improved learning effectiveness. This study found that both the general and specific types of information were important as was the interrelationship between the two. (DB)
