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.
