AN INFORMATION STORAGE MODEL FOR DISTANCE COGNITION

An experiment was performed to evaluate the utility of an information storage model of distance cognition. Subjects walked matched routes segmented with either easily memorable or difficult-to-remember proper names. In accord with the information storage model, the route with more remembered attributes was consistently estimated as longer than an equivalent route with difficult-to-remember attributes.(a) (TRRL)
