Understanding and Representing Space

Oxford University Press

Neuropsychological evidence and how it strengthens the case for considering spatial coding as dependent on the integration and organization of multimodal inputs is the main concern of this chapter. The evidence on anatomical and physiological changes is reviewed here. The chapter first provides a rough outline of some of the relevant brain regions and sensory systems. The other sections in this chapter focus on hemisphere specialization, especially for spatial processing in parietal regions of the right cerebral hemisphere, the effects of early experience, and the convergence of inputs in spatial functioning.

Keywords:   neuropsychology, spatial coding, multimodal inputs, physiological changes, brain regions, sensory systems, hemisphere specialization
