At the present stage of investigation, the mechanisms of backspace representation are not well understood. Based on results from patients with

path’ or ‘enclosure’ are generally seen as being preserved more accurately in human spatial representation (Kuipers, 1982; Poucet, 1993). As previously stated, the cognitive map is often assumed to be a two-dimensional structure similar to a cartographic map. In this plane, closed non

An Interdisciplinary Journey into the Domain of Spatial Representation in Philosophy and Psychology
Author: Bert Karcher
This wholeheartedly interdisciplinary book explores the possibility of domain specific cooperation between philosophy and psychology concerning questions on spatial representation. Its leitmotif is the importance of movement in concord with the workings of the body schema. Against the background of embodiment, situatedness, and Susan Hurley's notion of a ninety-degree shift it is spelled out how true, domain specific cooperation between the disciplines can be accomplished. By enriching Grush's naturalistic account of representation (emulation theory) with insights stemming from teleosemantics, the notion of the body schema is clarified and connected to the notion of a nonconceptual point of view. Translating this latter notion into three key capacities allows to draw on insights from neuroscience concerning place cells, head-direction cells, and grid cells. These cell types can be mapped on our key capacities, which shows that the nonconceptual point of view already is apparent on a very low level of analysis. Elaborating on Evans's notion of a travel-based space allows to sketch an account of spatial representation underwritten by the importance of movement and emulation and helps us to grasp spatial content's special framework role. Moreover, it provides a satisfying answer to the question of how a representation of space might be built up that enables higher-level cognition, yet, stands in continuity to sensorimotor research.

(depths falling within the lower and upper quartile). A spatial representation of the density index (by quantiles) was produced for all decapod crustaceans combined and for the most frequent species (>20 positive hauls). In particular, the indices were transferred under a GIS system and spatial maps

involved (Jürgens and Becker, 2006). Human sensory channels provide different kinds of information — such as auditory, visual and body-based — useful for the development of an adequate spatial representation. However, people rely mainly on sight to locate objects within the environment and to update their

visual input, which is the most predominant sense for spatial perception. Recent results showed that auditory feedback associated to body movements could enhance spatial representation both in sighted (Aggius-Vella et al ., 2017) and blind individuals (Cappagli et al ., 2017; Finocchietti et al

MDS (multidimensional scaling) is a technique that enables researchers to uncover the spatial representation or “hidden structure” that underlies and defines behavioral data – such as negotiator or disputant perceptions and preferences. Although MDS has wide-ranging theo- retical and applied appeal
