Disoriented men and women were trained to search for a goal hidden in front of one of four objects forming a rectangular-shaped array. The angular properties of these objects (either 50° or 75°) served as local geometric cues and the rectangular shape of the array served as global geometric cues. Upon successful completion of training, transformation tests were conducted during which either the local angle cues were removed and the global geometry was preserved (Global Cues test) or the local… CONTINUE READING
