Influence of Spatial Exploration Patterns on Cognitive Mapping by Blindfolded Sighted Persons.
Tellevik, J. M.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v86 n5 p221-24 May 1992
Ten sighted adults were blindfolded and asked to find four objects in the open space of a room. A perimeter pattern, a gridlike search pattern, and a reference-point strategy were variably effective, indicating that different kinds of experience may result in different kinds of knowledge that are optimal for different spatial judgment tasks.
