abstract

  • Despite its importance in clinical tasks, spatial learning is poorly understood. We did a randomised, single-blind study on 146 medical students to assess the effectiveness of student-controlled multiple views on the spatial learning process. High spatial ability of the student, and self-directed examination of an object from multiple different perspectives improves spatial learning.
