 Abstract: The finding that caricatures are recognized more quickly and accurately than veridical faces has been demonstrated only for frontal views of human faces (e.g., Benson Perrett, 1994). In the present study, we investigated whether there is also a “caricature effect” for three-quarter and profile views. Furthermore, we examined what happens to the caricature advantage when generalizing across view changes. We applied a 3D caricature algorithm to laser scanned head models. In a sequential matching task, we systematically varied the view of the target faces (left/right profile, left/right three-quarter, full-face), the view of the test faces (left/right profile, left/right threequarter, fullface) and the face type (anticaricature, veridical, caricature). The caricature effect was replicated for frontal views. We also found a clear caricature advantage for three-quarter and profile views. When generalizing across views, the caricature advantage was present for the majority of view change conditions. In a few conditions, there was an anticaricature advantage.
