Title: The nature and origin of cross-modal correspondences between color and material properties perceived through touch
Abstract: Cross-modal correspondences are associations between dimensions from different modalities that are not object-based. This project explores cross-modal correspondences between color and tactile sensations using haptically rendered virtual stimuli.
It also explores whether cross-modal correspondences between color and haptic lexicon mirror those between color and haptic sensations.
Based on findings and in light of the debate on the nature of cross-modal correspondences, I argue that none of the accounts have explanatory superiority and the nature of cross-modal correspondences is determined by the type of perceptual continua used.
