Garvill, J., and Molander, B. A note on the relation between cross-modal transfer of learning and cross-modal matching. Umeå Psychological Reports No. 126, 1977. - Cross-modal transfer of learning was studied in a paradigm that closely parallels the one used for studying intra-modal and cross-modal Hatching. The hypotheses that (1) the asymmetric transfer effects found in studies of cross-modal transfer of learning and in studies of intra-modal and eros s-modal Hatching are compatible and (2) that they can be explained in terms of differences in information processing capacity between the visual and the tactual modality were tested. The results supported the hypotheses. It was also found that the amount of cross-modal transfer as well as the asymmetry of transfer are affected by letting the subjects practice the transfer task on each trial.
