Garner and Congruence Effects in the Speeded Classification of Bimodal Signals

Patching, Geoffrey LU and Quinlan, Philip (2002) In Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance 28(4). p.755-775
Abstract
The role of attention in speeded Garner classification of concurrently presented auditory and visual signals was examined in 4 experiments. Within-trial interference (i.e., congruence effects) occurred regardless of the attentional demands of the task. Between-trials interference (i.e., Garner interference) occurred only under conditions of divided attention when making judgments about auditory signals. Of importance, the data show congruence effects in the absence of Garner interference. Such a pattern has been rarely reported in studies of the classification of purely visual stimuli and contradicts theoretical accounts asserting that the effects share a common locus. The data question the notion that Garner classification reveals... (More)
