Understanding and Representing Space

Spatial coding of small-scale layouts is discussed in this chapter. It looks at developmental theories and findings on spatial coding in infancy and childhood and in blind conditions. It deals with memory for locations, distances and directions in small-scale space. Also, small-scale spatial tasks are considered as tests of spatial memory and coding in the context of hypotheses about development. In addition, differences in information gained from small-scale and large-scale tasks are also considered briefly. Lastly, the chapter argues against the assumption that spatial development consists of a change of reference frame.
