We report four psychophysical experiments investigating cross-modal transfer in visual and haptic face recognition. We found surprisingly good haptic performance and cross-modal transfer for both modalities. Interestingly, transfer was asymmetric depending on which modality was learned first. These findings are discussed in relation to haptic object processing and face processing.
Cognition, human performance, perception and psychophysics.
