Abstract

Verification was sought for the assumption by Köhler & Wallach that figural after-effect is a phenomenon specific to any given sense modality. Results contradicted Köhler & Wallach and Jaffe, as concurrent stimulation in different sense modalities affected significantly the figural after-effects occurring in other sense modalities in the absence of any size relation between the stimuli. The results support the hypothesis of sensory interaction, suggested by Soviet researches.
