Abstract

The centuries-old philosophical question posed by William Molyneux and referred to by John Locke (1689) concerns the transfer of object information from touch to vision. Solvi, Al-Khudhairy, and Chittka (2020) tested this question comparatively in bumble bees and found evidence of crossmodal object recognition between touch and vision.
