Abstract null null Previous studies in spatial reorientation have found that young children rely mainly on geometric shapes for reorientation and sometimes ignore features in the environment. Theoretical interpretations of children’s reorientation performance are usually attributed to children’s spatial representation of their surrounding environments. The geometric module theory states that featural information is represented separately from geometric shape in young children’s reorientation, wh...

Non-visual information is important for navigation in limited visibility conditions. We designed a haptic-based relocation task to examine blindfolded adults' use of geometric cues. Forty-eight participants learned to locate a corner in a parallelogram frame. They were then tested in different transformed frames: (a) a reverse-parallelogram, in which locations predicted by original length information and angle information conflicted, (b) a rectangle, which retained only length information, and (...

Previous research has found that 3-5-year-old children could encode and retrieve a target location in a two-location series. In a paradigm of running two symmetrical railcars on a circular track, the study suggested that children used front-back array to help coding. That is, children at this age code the railcar running in the front of another as "the location in the front" and the railcar running in the back of another as "the location in the back." However, the children's success could be att...

Abstract From an early age, children are able to use surface layout geometry and landmarks to search for a hidden toy when disoriented. Theoretical debate remains regarding whether children represent locations based on the global environment or on local cues. Exploring whether children construct and use the relationships between discrete locations of the global environment can provide direct evidence regarding this issue. We investigated young children’s representation of two geometric relations...

: The current study investigated whether children understand the conditions under which another agent would hold uncertain knowledge resulting from inferential processes and, more importantly, whether children can make causal inferences about the relationship between the certainty of an agent's epistemic states and consequent behavioral strategies. We developed a game in which 3 blocks (2 of identical color) were hidden in 3 boxes. After the content of the 1st box was revealed, the player was as...

We studied the strategy preference of using the egocentric or the allocentric representation in individuals who have acquired the abilities to use both representations. Fifty-seven children aged 5-7 years and 53 adults retrieved toys hidden in one of four identical containers in a square room. We varied the type of spatial representation available in four conditions: (1) only self-motion information (egocentric representation); (2) only external landmark cues (allocentric representation); (3) bo...

Right hand responds faster than left hand when shown larger numbers and vice-versa when shown smaller numbers (the SNARC effect). Accumulating evidence suggests that the SNARC effect may not be exclusive for numbers and can be extended to other ordinal sequences (e.g., months or letters in the alphabet) as well. In this study, we tested the SNARC effect with a non-numerically ordered sequence: The Chinese notations for the color spectrum (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet). Ch...
