- Navigation experience and mental representations of the environment: do pilots build better cognitive maps?Jennifer E Sutton
Department of Psychology, Brescia University College, London, Ontario, Canada
PLoS ONE 9:e90058. 2014..Pilots' superior performance is likely due to better online cognitive processing during exploration, suggesting the spatial updating they engage in during flight transfers to a non-aviation context. ..
- Geometry three ways: an fMRI investigation of geometric information processing during reorientationJennifer E Sutton
Department of Experimental Psychology, Heinrich Heine University Dusseldorf, Dusseldorf, Germany
J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 38:1530-41. 2012..These findings add to growing evidence that adults use verbal processes to encode environment geometry and that the reorientation tasks that young children find difficult are particularly hippocampus-dependent...
- Spinning in the scanner: neural correlates of virtual reorientationJennifer E Sutton
Department of Psychology, Brescia University College, 1285 Western Road, London, Ontario, Canada
J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 36:1097-107. 2010..These results provide neural evidence for processing differences between the 2 types of cue as well as insight into developmental and comparative aspects of reorientation...
- The development of landmark and beacon use in young children: evidence from a touchscreen search taskJennifer E Sutton
Department of Psychology, University of Western Ontario, Canada
Dev Sci 9:108-23. 2006..Overall, beacons were utilized effectively by all participants, but the use of landmark cues is refined between the ages of 2 and 4...
- Internal sense of direction and landmark use in pigeons (Columba livia)Jennifer E Sutton
Department of Psychology, University of Toronto, ON, Canada
J Comp Psychol 119:273-84. 2005..Pigeons tended to follow the landmarks in a conflict situation but could use an internal sense of direction to search when landmarks were unavailable...
- What is geometric information and how do animals use it?Jennifer E Sutton
Department of Psychology, Brescia University College, 1285 Western Rd, London, ON N6G1H2, Canada
Behav Processes 80:339-43. 2009..With a clearer picture of what geometric information is and how it might be used in nature, the generality of findings from laboratory studies of geometry enclosure can be better assessed...
- Memory without awareness: pigeons do not show metamemory in delayed matching to sampleJennifer E Sutton
Department of Psychology, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
J Exp Psychol Anim Behav Process 34:266-82. 2008..In Experiment 4, confidence ratings following completion of the matching test also did not vary consistently as predicted by metamemory...
- Multiple systems for spatial learning: dead reckoning and beacon homing in ratsSara J Shettleworth
Department of Psychology, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON M5S 3G3, Canada
J Exp Psychol Anim Behav Process 31:125-41. 2005..Dead reckoning experience did not block acquisition of beacon homing (Experiment 3). Beacon learning and dead reckoning do not compete for predictive value but acquire information in parallel and are used hierarchically...
