The Development of Hierarchical Representation of Two-Dimensional Space.
Sandberg, Elisabeth Hollister; And Others
Child Development, v67 n3 p721-39 Jun 1996
Two studies of development of spatial representation with two dimensions found that children as young as five years use the same two independent dimensions in fine-grained spatial coding of location in a circle as adults use--radius and angle. The adult pattern, where angle as well as radius is coded hierarchically, emerges by nine years. (HTH)
