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.
