Multiple Mental Spaces
Tuesday, March 25, 2003, 01:00pm - 02:00pm
Stanford University, Department of Psychology
We engage in spatial cognition from the first moments of life: where to look, where to reach, where to go. Each of these acts involves a different space and different set of behaviors: the space of the body, the space around the body, the space of navigation. Also of import is a space created by people, the space of external representations. Both our bodies and the world have natural asymmetries that affect perception of and behavior in these spaces, yielding mental representations that differ systematically from space as measured by geographers or physicists
