Abstract or Description

The study was conducted at Goldsmiths, University of London in April 2012. 588 participants were assessed as part of the laboratory InLab. The results showed that spatial abilities were not significantly associated with age, gender, leading hand or the presence of brothers and sisters. The only significant difference found in the study was a difference between the sexes in the number of spatial and non-spatial activities. The results also showed that the two spatial abilities (spatial memory and mental rotation) are likely to develop under the influence of different factors, and are only weakely associated with each other.
