The Influence of Turns on Distance Cognition: New Experimental Approaches to Clarify the Route-Angularity Effect
Environment and Behavior Vol. 36, No. 6 (2004) pp. 790–813
Three experiments investigated the route-angularity effect, which is demonstrated when a greater number of turns along a route increases the estimated length. So far, a route-angularity effect has not been demonstrated in school-age children....
