Solving Spatial Tasks with Unaligned Layouts: The Difficulty of Dealing with Conflicting Information.
Vasilyeva, Marina
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v83 n4 p291-303 Dec 2002
Two studies examined whether 4-year-olds' difficulty using relational information in spatial tasks was due, in part, to their inability to deal with situations where both objective and egocentric cues were available and pointed to different responses. Findings indicated that the presence of conflict significantly affected children's performance in locating an object in a single layout presented from different perspectives and in transferring locational information between two unaligned layouts.
