Developmental Trends in Figure Reasoning.
Vos, Peter G.
International Journal of Behavioral Development, v1 n4 p377-89 Dec 1978
Derives two models for conceptualizing figure similarities from Piaget's developmental theory of spatial reference systems. An experiment on a two alternative forced-choice similarity matching task revealed age differences in observer dependence among children and young adults. Concludes that some Euclidian space concepts are achieved as formal reasoning is acquired. (RH)
