||Visual localization within single geometric planes of a space habitat
||Mar. 1997, Vol.68, No.3, p.192-198. Illus. 23 ref.
||This study investigated the way in which human subjects capture and restore visual information configuring a 3-dimensional (3D) environment in order to construct an adequate mental representation of space. Nine subjects were asked to localize a light point appearing for 3s in different spatial positions and for different tilt angles in a line drawing representing the 3D configuration of a space module. Results showed that the variations of the average point-localizing errors depended on both the tilt angles and the point positions. It is concluded that visual localization in single geometric planes is orientation-dependent.
