After each rotation, participants pointed to remembered target locations.
In this case, error that accrues over self motion should accrue to the entire representation, that is, all of the object locations contained therein should be associated with the same updating error.
Spatial memory has representations within working, short-term memory and long-term memory.
Research indicates that there are specific areas of the brain associated with spatial memory.
For instance, the ability to work on a complicated mathematical problem utilizes one's working memory.doi: 10.1016/j.cogpsych.20 Pubmed Abstract | Pubmed Full Text | Cross Ref Full Text Malouin, F., Richards, C.Spatial memory refers to the part of the memory system that encodes, stores, recognizes and recalls spatial information about the environment and the agent’s orientation within it.A description of this hypothesis begins with a discussion of some basic properties of spatial representation.Participants learned the locations of an array of objects around them in a room, then were blindfolded and underwent a succession of passive, whole-body rotations.
