 Abstract: Four experiments investigated the roles of layout geometry and viewing perspectives in the selection of intrinsic frames of reference inspatial memory. Participants learned the locations of objects in a room from two or three viewing perspectives. One view corresponded to the axis of bilateral symmetry of the layout. Judgments of relative direction using spatial memory were quicker for imagined headings parallel to the symmetric axis than for those parallel to the other viewing perspectives. This advantage disappeared when the symmetric axis was removed. Judgments of relative direction were not equally fast for the two oblique experienced headings. These results indicate that lay-out geometry affects the selection of intrinsic frames of reference and that two oblique intrinsic directions cannot be selected simultaneously.
