Abstract :

The link between individual visuo-spatial abilities and environment learning relates to the learning input and the type of task used to assess recall. This finding was based on data from 431 adults, with ages ranging from 25 to 84 years old. They learned environments from a map and a video, and performed pointing, map drawing, and route repetition tasks after learning from each type of input.
