- Not-so-total recall. Horton, Mary Jane; Strote, Mary Ellen // Fit Pregnancy;Oct/Nov2005, Vol. 12 Issue 5, p32
This article presents the results of a study conducted by scientists at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia regarding the memory of pregnant women. Scientists tracked 39 women from early pregnancy and found that in tests of memory and spatial ability, women pregnant with boys...
- WHICH WAY DID WE GO? May, Mike // American Scientist;Nov/Dec97, Vol. 85 Issue 6, p521

- Individual differences in gender role beliefs influence spatial ability test performance. Massa, Laura J.; Mayer, Richard E.; Bohon, Lisa M. // Learning & Individual Differences;Mar2005, Vol. 15 Issue 2, p99
Abstract: The gender role hypothesis posits that performance on a cognitive ability test is influenced by whether the test instructions frame the test as measuring a skill that is consistent or inconsistent with the test taker''s gender role beliefs. The Bem sex role inventory was used to...

- Gender-Based Navigation Stereotype Improves Men's Search for a Hidden Goal. Rosenthal, Harriet; Norman, Liam; Smith, Shamus; McGregor, Anthony // Sex Roles;Dec2012, Vol. 67 Issue 11/12, p682
While a general stereotype exists that men are better at navigating than women, experimental evidence indicates that men and women differ in their use of spatial strategies, and this preference determines gender-differences. When both environmental geometry and landmark cues are available, men...
- Individual differences in using geometric and featural cues to maintain spatial orientation: cue quantity and cue ambiguity are more important than cue type. Jonathan W Kelly; Timothy P McNamara; Bobby Bodenheimer; Thomas H Carr; John J Rieser // Psychonomic Bulletin & Review;Feb2009, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p176
Two experiments explored the role of environmental cues in maintaining spatial orientation (sense of self-location and direction) during locomotion. Of particular interest was the importance of geometric cues (provided by environmental surfaces) and featural cues (nongeometric properties...
