Imagery in multi-modal object learning

Jüttner, Martin and Rentschler, Ingo (2002). Imagery in multi-modal object learning. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 25 (2), pp. 197-198.


Spatial objects may not only be perceived visually but also by touch. We report recent experiments investigating to what extent prior object knowledge acquired in either the haptic or visual sensory modality transfers to a subsequent visual learning task. Results indicate that even mental object representations learnt in one sensory modality may attain a multi-modal quality. These findings seem incompatible with picture-based reasoning schemas but leave open the possibility of modality-specific reasoning mechanisms.
