Abstract

The aim of the present work was to show that cognitive conflict, an issue that has been widely studied within theboundaries of the classical cognitive approach, is a clear example of higher order cognition tied to perceptionand action. Examples of how the cognitive conflict arising from spatial correspondence tasks is highly groundedin body attributes and in environmental/situational factors are provided. Spatial performance is stronglymodulated by handedness, prior experience and by social factors. In addition, in two experiments empiricalfindings are reported showing that the spatial correspondence effect is a function of the location of the dynamicevent even when target location is in the opposite position. These results point to the notion that spatialperformance is refractory from the intervention of higher order cognition.
