Human choice reaction time was studied as a function of sense modality and inter- versus intrasensory coding at three levels of stimulus strength. Unlike the case in earlier studies, stimulus strength was equated across sense modalities. Classical findings were supported for strength and modality; intersensory coding was superior to intrasensory coding.
