Several task-switch studies show that response category repetition is favorable on task repetition trials, but disadvantageous on task switch trials. In the present study we investigated how this interaction depends on the type and number of involved response categories. In a dual-task number-categorization experiment, subjects had to respond to tasks T(1) and T(2) with one of the two fingers of their left and right hand, respectively. For one group of participants, the use of spatial response categories, and for another group the use of finger-type categories was induced. It turned out that the interaction between task switching and response category repetition was clearly related to the induced response categories, but at the same time, the spatial categories nevertheless also affected response selection in the finger-type group. However, these two effects were additive. This shows that multiple response codes can simultaneously be involved in response selection, but that they affect performance differentially.
