Navigating Virtual Spaces
This study aims to understand better understand individual differences in spatial navigation performance. The researchers tested participants’ abilities using a Morris water maze, a standard design that manipulates proximal (close) and distal (far away) cues and simulates free roaming navigation. The present study assesses individual differences like gender, temperament, navigation experiences, and neural asymmetry using electroencephalogram (EEG) and independent component analysis (ICA). In addition, two novel measures were used to determine spatial navigation experiences. Thirty college students ...
