IModels of Psychological Space/I begins the reformulation of the construct of psychological space by bringing together in one volume a sampling of theoretical models from the psychometric, developmental, and experimental approaches. The author also discusses five general issues which cut across these three approaches; namely, age-related differences, sex-related differences, trainability, imagery, processing solutions, and the effect of stimulus dimensionality upon spatial performance. IModels of /I IPsychological Space/I provides an overview of a significant construct which has many researchable ideas, and which should be of interest to scholars from a wide range of disciplines.
