The Emerging Spatial Mind

Edited by Jodie M. Plumert and John P. Spencer

  • 1) First edited volume on childrens spatial development in last 25 years. This is important because there has been a lot of activity in the field of spatial development recently and this volume brings together the latest cutting-edge research on the topic.
  • 2) Strong focus on the processes and mechanisms underlying developmental change. This is important because it makes the book of interest to people in the field of cognitive development more generally, not just to those specifically interested in spatial development.
  • 3) Commentaries by researchers in the field of adult spatial cognition. This is important because it helps tie together adult and child research on spatial cognition something that is not commonly done. This also makes the book of broader interest to the field of spatial cognition.
  • 4) Brings together research that examines spatial cognition at multiple levels of analysis from genes to neurons to behaviors to the behavior of social groups.
  • 5) Has a strong interdisciplinary component with ties to computer science, neuroscience, education, cognitive science, geography
