Orienting oneself in space requires establishing a correspondence between various spatial frames of reference (SFR) in which the same information about the environment can be encoded in different ways and formats. In this encoding process, one key point is the alignment of the SFRs, which may require additional operations such as a mental or real rotation. Three experiments were conducted to investigate the process of spatial orientation under aligned and misaligned conditions. Subjects were… CONTINUE READING
