Brain connectivity during encoding and retrieval of spatial information: individual differences in navigation skills

Sharma, Greeshma ; Gramann, Klaus ; Chandra, Sushil ; Singh, Vijander ; Mittal, Alok Prakash (2017)

Emerging evidence suggests that the variations in the ability to navigate through any real or virtual environment are accompanied by distinct underlying cortical activations in multiple regions of the brain. These activations may appear due to the use of different frame of reference (FOR) for representing an environment. The present study investigated the brain dynamics in the good and bad navi...

Modified navigation instructions for spatial navigation assistance systems lead to incidental spatial learning

Gramann, Klaus ; Hoepner, Paul ; Karrer-Gauss, Katja (2017-02-13)

Spatial cognitive skills deteriorate with the increasing use of automated GPS navigation and a general decrease in the ability to orient in space might have further impact on independence, autonomy, and quality of life. In the present study we investigate whether modified navigation instructions support incidental spatial knowledge acquisition. A virtual driving environment was used to examine ...
