Spatial Orientation

The research group "Spatial Orientation" is led by Roland Maurer (maître d'enseignement et de recherche).

Research fields

Spatial orientation

  • Influence of the parameters of the visual scene on path integration (the process, based on self-movement cues, through which an organism keeps track of its location relative to the initial point of its journey) during virtual locomotion.
  • Path integration in situations of real locomotion: models and tests.
  • Path integration in aged subjects and with hippocampal lesions.
  • Ontogeny of path integration.
