The Development of Memory for Location: What Role Do Spatial Prototypes Play?
Plumert, Jodie M.; Hund, Alycia M.
Child Development, v72 n2 p370-84 Mar-Apr 2001
Two experiments investigated the role of spatial prototypes in estimates of location. Found that adults and children ages 7 to 11 years overestimated distances between target locations in different regions and that none displaced objects toward the region centers. Even with boundaries removed during testing, adults and children overestimated distances between target objects in different regions. (Author/KB)
