    • Mental rotation is a hypothesized imagery process that has inspired controversy regarding the substrate of human spatial reasoning. Two central questions about mental rotation remain: Does mental rotation depend on analog spatial representations, and does mental rotation depend on motor simulation? A review and meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies help answer these questions. Mental rotation is accompanied by increased activity in the intraparietal sulcus and adjacent regions...

    Jeffrey M. Zacks. Neuroimaging Studies of Mental Rotation: A Meta-analysis and Review

    • Mental rotation is the capacity to predict the orientation of an object or the layout of a scene after a change in viewpoint. Previous studies have shown that the cognitive cost of mental rotations is reduced when the viewpoint change results from the observer's motion rather than the object or spatial layout's rotation. The classical interpretation for these findings involves the use of automatic updating mechanisms triggered during self-motion...

    Alexandre Lehmannet al. A High-End Virtual Reality Setup for the Study of Mental Rotations

    • Mental rotation is the capacity to predict the outcome of spatial relationships after a change in viewpoint. These changes arise either from the rotation of the test object array or from the rotation of the observer. Previous studies showed that the cognitive cost of mental rotations is reduced when viewpoint changes result from the observer’s motion, which was explained by the spatial updating mechanism involved during self-motion...

    • Mental rotation is an important part of human spatial cognition. In the last decade a growing number of brain imaging studies have been undertaken to uncover the neural underpinnings of mental rotation...

    Lutz Jänckeet al. Functional Neuroanatomy of Mental Rotation Performance

    • Mental rotation is a widely accepted concept that suggests an analogue mode of visual informationprocessing in certain visuospatial tasks. Typically, these tasks demand the discrimination between the image and mirror-image of rotated figures, for which human subjects need an increasing reaction time depending on the angular disparity between the rotated figures...
