Computers in Human Behavior Vol. 18, No. 4 (2002) pp. 427–36
Discusses research in spatial cognition that uses computer-simulated three dimensional environments and evaluates the use of virtual desktop environments by replicating an experiment which was formerly done in a laboratory or real world setting....
Learning and Instruction Vol. 18, No. 1 (February 2008) pp. 30–41
When deciding whether two stimuli rotated in space are identical or mirror reversed, subjects employ mental rotation to solve the task. In children mental rotation can be trained by extensive repetition of the task, but the improvement seems to rely ...
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....
Brain and Cognition Vol. 62, No. 2 (November 2006) pp. 120–127
The spatial knowledge of 18 children with spina bifida and 18 healthy control children (matched according to sex, age, and verbal IQ) was investigated in a computer-simulated environment. All children had to learn a route through a virtual floor...
