Special Theme Section--Representation and Blindness: The Effect of Extended Acoustic Training on Spatial Updating in Adults Who Are Congenitally Blind.
Easton, Randolph D.; Bentzen, Billie Louise
Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v93 n7 p405-33 Jul 1999
A study, including research and practice notes by various authors, investigated whether extended training in an acoustically rich environment could enhance the spatial updating ability of 12 adults with congenital blindness. After training, the adults' distance perception from a home-base location and novel locations was superior to a sighted control group, whereas their direction perception was comparable. (Author/CR)
