    • ...Landau & Jackendoff, 1993; Loomis, Da Silva, Philbeck, & Fukusima, 1996; Vorwerg, 2003)—requires a spatial frame of reference consisting of a set of axes, relative to which it can be judged...

    • ...More generally and even at functional level, researchers are still far from fully understanding some fundamental issues [8][9][10], such as the mapping between the real space and visual space (visually perceived space), the connection between visual space and actions, and the importance of visual stimulation in determining the structure of the visual space...

    • ...Traditionally, perceptual psychologists have argued that the information available for estimating extents consisted of visual angles and oculomotor cues only, which are scaled to a unitless metric (Foley, 1980; Loomis, Da Silva, Philbeck, & Fukusima, 1996)...

    • ...Within action space, egocentric distances can be judged with approximate accuracy (e.g., Kuroda, 1971; Teghtsoonian & Teghtsoonian, 1970), whereas exocentric distance judgments often reveal dramatic underestimation, which tends to be more or less extreme depending on the action context (e.g., Loomis, Da Silva, Philbeck, & Fukusima, 1996; Wagner, 1985)...
    • ...This compression is modest when egocentric distance is to be judged, whereas it can lead to overestimations of up to 100% when exocentric judgments have to be made (Amorim, Loomis, & Fukusima, 1998; Hecht et al., 1999; Loomis et al., 1996; Norman, Todd, Perotti, & Tittle, 1996; Toye, 1986; Wagner, 1985)...
    • ...Effort. What complicates the issue is that distance may be coded in effort units rather than optical units (Kammann, 1967; Loomis et al., 1996)...
    • ...The spatial representation underlying a blindwalking task or an equal distance task is known to produce different results, and matching a frontoparallel distance with a given sagittal distance leads to a foreshortening in the sagittal direction (e.g., Amorim et al., 1998; Loomis et al., 1996)...

    • ...In fact, researchers have used a variety of behavioral methods to measure perceived distance in addition to blindfolded walking and verbal reports (see Loomis, Da Silva, Philbeck, & Fukusima, 1996, and Da Silva, 1985, for reviews)...
