Abstract:

The nature of human visual-spatial representations have been studied from a variety of disciplines, and have contributed to a rich understanding of how humans process space. This report presents a summary of the literature, including work from computational cognitive science, cognitive neuroscience, mathematical psychology, developmental psychology, and cognitive psychology. The literature highlights the core dimensions that emerged types of representations, biases in representation, dimensionality of representation, and multiplicity of representation.
