Prior research has shown that recognition of unfamiliar faces is susceptible to image variations due to pose and expression changes. However, little is known about how these variations on a new face are learnt and handled. We aimed to investigate whether exposures to one type of variation facilitate recognition in the untrained variation. In Experiment 1, faces were trained in multiple or single pose but were tested with a new expression. In Experiment 2, faces were trained in multiple or single expression but were tested in a new pose. We found that higher level of exposure to pose information facilitated recognition of the trained face in a new expression. However, multiple-expression training failed to transfer to a new pose. The findings suggest that generalisation of pose training may be extended to different types of variation whereas generalisation of expression training is largely confined within the trained type of variation.
