From the Hands to the Mind: Haptic Brand Signatures

Four experiments show that brand-specific haptic primes automatically activate a brand’s knowledge structures, thereby promoting perceptual processing in other modalities, cognitive accessibility, and prime-congruent brand choices. Implications for sensory marketing and product management arise.
