Herman, James F.; And Others
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v77 n5 p195-98 May 1983
Twelve blind students (12 to 24 years old) explored haptically the spatial relations among objects on a table top and were then asked to walk all the paths connecting the objects in a large scale environment. The students deduced the overall arrangement of locations from any point in the large scale environment fairly accurately. (CL)
