The Externalization of Spatial Representation by Blind Persons.
Huertas, J. A.; Ochaita, E.
Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness, v86 n9 p398-402 Nov 1992
Forty blind children and adolescents had to learn two unknown environments and then externalize the spatial representation via two methods--building a scale model and verbally estimating distances. High correlations were found between the two methods and between those methods and two systems of measuring mobility. (Author/JDD)
