Three experiments investigated the use of visual input and body movement input arising from movement through the world on spatial orientation. Infants between 9 1/2 and 18 months participated in a search task in which they searched for a toy hidden in 1 of 2 containers. Prior to beginning search, either the infants or the containers were rotated 180 degrees; these rotations occurred in a lit or dark environment. These experiments were distinguished by the environmental cues for object location… CONTINUE READING
