Abstract:In an audiovisual conflict situation, audition should–according to the modality appropriateness hypothesis–dominate with temporally and vision with spatially distributed input. Out of this proposition the question arises, which modality would dominate if information was presented bimodally distributed across their optimal dimensions. This question was tested by simultaneously exposing participants to a display of dots and a sequence of sounds, of which the number had to be estimated. Additionally, it was tested whether an easily recognizable pattern of dots would have an effect on the estimates. In summary, no expected effects of multimodal interference were found. The results indicate that the current design did not lead to audiovisual integration, which could result from the missing temporal alignment of stimuli
