Many tasks can be carried out by using several sources of information. For example, an object’s size and shape can be judged based on visual as well as haptic cues. It has been shown recently that human observers integrate visual and haptic size information in a statistically optimal fashion, in the sense that the integrated estimate is most reliable (Ernst and Banks in Nature 415:429–433, 2002). In the present study, we tested whether this holds also for visual and haptic shape information. In… Expand
