The present study analyzes the development of the spatial abilities in children aged 36-95 months and the sex-related differences by means of the free-choice and forced-choice paradigms of the eight-arm radial maze task. Clear age-related improvements were evidenced. However, a temporal window with an abrupt acceleration of specific spatial competencies acquisition was detected. The females aged 51-58 months started the task performing about 2.5 errors and ended it performing no more than 0.5… CONTINUE READING
