2 experiments were conducted concerning the development of spatial orientation during the second year of life. Both experiments were focused on oriented search for a hidden target object in the absence of landmarks, which can be accomplished by relating one's movements to knowledge of a target's location. In experiment 1, 18-month-olds were tested to examine the precision with which they use information for the direction and magnitude of self-movement to keep track of the target location… CONTINUE READING
