A framework for three-dimensional navigation research


Jeffery, Kathryn J; Jovalekic, Aleksandar; Verriotis, Madeleine; Hayman, Robin (2013). A framework for three-dimensional navigation research. Behavioral and Brain Sciences, 36(5):571-587.

Abstract

We have argued that the neurocognitive representation of large-scale, navigable three-dimensional space is anisotropic, having different properties in vertical versus horizontal dimensions. Three broad categories organize the experimental and theoretical issues raised by the commentators: (1) frames of reference, (2) comparative cognition, and (3) the role of experience. These categories contain the core of a research program to show how three-dimensional space is represented and used by humans and other animals.
