This course is designed to explore the breadth of research in higher-level visuospatial cognition. The course will incorporate both basic theoretical work on the mechanisms of visuospatial thought, as well as the role of visuospatial thinking in learning and in practical tasks such as visuospatial display comprehension (map, graph, and diagram reading). In the first part of this course, we will focus on basic cognitive research in visuospatial cognition. The first section of the course will focus on current research on visuospatial working memory, imagery, and visuospatial abilities (including sex differences and developmental issues). The second section of the course will include topics of visuospatial thinking in higher-level cognition, such as navigation and spatial mental models. Finally, a large portion of the course will focus on process-models of visuospatial thinking (including in practical domains). In this section of the cuorse, we will consider models of graph, map, diagram, hypertest, and multimedia comprehension. We will also discuss implications of design based on cognitive principles.
