Scientists from ITMO University together with their colleagues from the UK, Italy, and Russia examined the structure of human spatial abilities. These are the skills people use to navigate from point A to point B and solve a wide range of math problems. The study showed that these abilities structurally resemble a giant network with compass navigation being its core element. The researchers suggest that the improvement of navigation skills using cardinal directions may lead to the improvement of other spatial abilities, as well. Their work can potentially help create recommendations on how to enhance the learning process.
