Spatial Cognition brings together psychology, computer science, linguistics and geography, discussing how people think about space (our internal cognitive maps and spatial perception) and how we communicate about space, for instance giving route directions or using spatial metaphors.

The technological applications adding dynamism to the area include computer interfaces, educational software, multimedia, and in-car navigation systems. On the experimental level, themes as varied as gender differences in orientation and — of course, wholly unrelated — the role of the hippocampus in rodent navigation are described. Much detailed analysis and computational modeling of the structure of short term memory (STM) is discussed. The papers were presented at the 1998 annual meeting of the Cognitive Science Society of Ireland, Mind III. (Series B)

Table of Contents
“[...] the book accurately accounts for current technological trends in modeling, research, and design.

[...] provides an appropriate depiction of the interdisciplinary nature of the field.

[...] succesfully conveys some of the key research issues in the field.

[...] represents a manageable consideration of important issues in spatial research.

“[...] Spatial Cognition does a good job at presenting central issues in simulation and the connections between language and spatial perception. [...] there is rich material to be gleaned by the persistent nontechnical theorist as well.”
