SPECIAL SECTION ON REPRESENTATION AND BLINDNESS
Randolph D. Easton and Billie Louise Bentzen
Abstract: This study investigated whether extended training in an acoustically rich environment could enhance the spatial updating ability of 12 adults who were congenitally blind. After training, the adults' distance perception from a home-base location and novel locations was superior to that of a sighted control group, whereas their direction perception was comparable.

Abstract: This study compared the positive and negative adaptation strategies used by people with low vision (25 working-age and 23 elderly people) who had participated in a rehabilitation program with two comparison groups: 335 persons with neurological disabilities and an age- and sex-matched population of 112 nondisabled persons. It also investigated relationships among adaptation strategies, psychological well-being, and self-assessed difficulties with activities of daily living.
