Spatial representation in blindness
Dodds, A.G. (1980) Spatial representation in blindness. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The role of previous visual experience in relation to spatial representation is investigated by comparing the performance of the congenitally blind, the late-blinded and the sighted blindfolded on a number, of near-space tasks involving mental rotation, mental manipulation and scale transformation, and a far-space task involving the representation of two routes by means of pointing, drawing and the making of spatial inferences.
