The Mental Manipulation of 2-D Representations of Knots as Deformable Structures.
McLeay, Heather; Piggins, David
Educational Studies in Mathematics, v30 n4 p399-414 Jun 1996
Spatial tests involving the comparison of diagrams of interlaced ropes or knots at varying orientations were given to (n=21) subjects, mostly English college undergraduates, to determine an ordering in terms of complexity of tasks involving the mental manipulation of the knots. Certain knot shapes were processed faster than others and greater relative rotation increased the decision time. (Author/MKR)
