Memory for Verbally Presented Routes: A Comparison of Strategies Used by Blind and Sighted People.
Easton, R. D.; Bentzen, B. L.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v81 n3 p100-05 Mar 1987
Congenitally-blind (N=16) and sighted (N=16) young adults listened to descriptions of routes and then finger traced routes through a raised line matrix. Route tracing speed and accuracy revealed that spatial sentence verification interfered with route memory more than abstract/verbal sentence verification for all subjects. (Author/CB)
