This report describes the progress in the project Orientation and Navigation which was set up with an eye on the fighter pilot. A task for mental orientation is described in which subjects are required to imagine themselves rotated in the horizontal plane. At the same time they undergo an actual rotation in the same plane but in a different direction. Imagined reorientation angle had a strong effect on cognitive processing time the actual rotation, however, had no effect. Reasons for absence of conflict and suggestions for continued investigations are presented. Keywords Orientation direction Perception psychology Netherlands Dutch language.
