A Note on the Development of Recall of Spatial Location
Von Wright, J. M.; And Others
British Journal of Psychology, 69 pt 2, 213-6, May 78
Recall of spatial location was studied with 5, 8, 12-13, and 17-18 year old subjects. Intentional learning of location was superior to incidental learning in the youngest but not in older children. Results are in agreement with Bryant's (1974) analysis of perceptual development which emphasizes the use of external spatial frames of reference in the encoding of attributes of visual objects in young children.
