After an object disappears, the vanishing point is shifted in the direction of motion, a phenomenon known as representational momentum. The present study focused on the relationship between motion information and spatial location in a crossmodal setting. In two visuotactile experiments, we studied how motion information in one sensory modality affects the perceived final location of a motion signal (congruent vs. incongruent left-right motion direction) in another modality. The results revealed a unidirectional crossmodal influence of motion information on spatial localization performance. While visual motion information influenced the perceived final location of the tactile stimulus, tactile motion information had no influence on visual localization. These results therefore extend the existing literature on crossmodal influences on spatial location and are discussed in relation to current theories of multisensory perception.
