It was asked whether prior training on a shape discrimination in one sensory modality (say visual) would improve subsequent performance on the same shape discrimination in another modality (say tactile). Four rhesus monkeys were trained to a standard level of performance, two animals on one shape discrimination test offered in the light, two other animals on another shape discrimination test offered in the dark. All animals were subsequently trained on the first test in the dark and on the second in the light. There was no clear evidence that prior training in the one modality promoted improved performance in the subsequent modality. These findings are extended and discussed.
