Summary:
The effect of stimulus plane orientation (horizontal vs vertical) on mirror-image oblique discrimination was investigated for children 5 to 8 years of age. A significant difference in learning rate favoring the vertical plane presentation was obtained. Tracing the stimuli had no effect on learning rate in either the horizontal or vertical plane. The results were explained in terms of egocentricity in the child's representation of spatial relations.
