Description of The Effects of Visual Experience and Training in Raised-Line Materials on the Mental Spatial Imagery of Blind Persons

Visual experience improved performances of blind adults in mental rotation and mental representation of the path of a spot. Congenitally blind participants with high expertise in graphic material performed better than two categories of nonexpert participants--those who became blind early in their lives versus those who became blind later in their lives--indicating that graphic expertise may compensate for the lack of visual representations. Implications for teaching are discussed.
