    In six experiments, subjects judged the sizes of squares that were presented visually and/or haptically, in unimodal or bimodal conditions. We were interested in which mode most affected size judgments in the bimodal condition when the squares presented to each mode actually differed in size....

    Numerous careful behavioral studies of visual persistence have reported a variety of apparently contradictory effects. Variation of flash intensity has particularly been found to have both direct and inverse effects on subjective duration. This conflict has been addressed by theories which...

    Irrelevant events in one sensory modality can influence the number of events that are perceived in another modality. Previously, the underlying process of sensory integration was studied in conditions in which participants knew a priori which sensory modality was relevant and which was not....

    The article discusses the role of hemispheric asymmetry in the performing of simple sensorimotor tasks: a sequence of movements on a touch screen with the left or right hand. It was assumed that this task can be solved using vector or positioning system of representations, which in varying...

    Identification of a visual target can be enhanced by a simultaneously presented high tone embedded in a sequence of low tones. This is called "freezing effect" because it is as if the target display was frozen in time by the tone. Until now, however, it has not been known whether this sound...

    The article focuses on the association between silence and cloth. It mentions that the concept of silence considers the capacity of cloth to move beyond a set of visual clues, helping to speak about sensorial and less tangible ways in which cloth can speak. It also highlights the development of...

    This article discusses the conditions of the «Self» spatial image development as the first form of self-consciousness. The sense of own movement, the sense of balance and touch are seen as the main sources of the spatial image of «Self» . These senses define boundaries of the...
