Task-irrelevant cues in one modality can enhance reaction times in others—but they don't always do that. Instances of this effect have been implicated with exogenous attention.

Task-irrelevant auditory cues have been found to enhance reaction times in others. visual cues, however, which cued visual localization, did not cue auditory localization.
