The variable–landmark condition, therefore, reproduces the Alignment effect as well as the fixed–landmark condition. It may be concluded that this effect does not depend on a certain fixed arrangement of landmarks. 32 Kazuhiro Tamura et al. 01. 60). This result is consistent with the fixed–landmark condition. 1. 4). These results are consistent with the previous analysis. 1. No further interactions reached significance. 4 Mean response speed and standard errors for the interaction between local landmark and alignment test display conditions in Experiment 1 Minimizing Cognitive Load 33 absence of a Length effect provides us with a reality-check that, whereas factors considered relevant contribute variety to the design, the ones considered irrelevant do not.

Landmarks are a natural element in spontaneous sketch Minimizing Cognitive Load 25 maps and in mental representations of environments (for example, Denis, 1997; Taylor and Tversky, 1992a, 1992b; Tversky and Lee, 1998, 1999). Properly placed and designed, landmarks might provide cues for making mental navigation decisions that facilitate map use. The study of whether and when landmarks facilitate map reading has, besides practical, also more fundamental implications, as it allows us to investigate what type of mental processes are being used in navigation.

This memory disability for recognizing faces and remembering the names that go with faces has the sad effect of socially isolating these individuals. Cognitive impairments in laboratory animals can be produced which are similar in nature to Korsakoff’s disease through the use of pyrithiamine, which lesions brain areas (that is, the mammilary bodies of the hippocampus) important in memory. Savage and Langlais (1995) discovered that our DO procedure seems to aid memory in these animal models of Korsakoff’s disease.
