mental rotation

I found this article from Stanford University interesting

it cites evidence for people using imagery: mental rotation abilities in particular

along with language, imagery seems a significant aspect of the learning process

in this experiment, people were asked to identify which of the pictures (with more like these) showed a reflection of the shape and which were rotations
