The apprehension and interpretation of physical, experiential, and/or pictorial space, including the spatial relations between objects, and movement. Psychologically, individuals differ in their spatial skills, such as the mental rotation of objects and spatial orientation. Oft-cited references to males tending to demonstrate better spatial skills than females involve statistical overlaps rather than distinct differences between the sexes. See also binocular vision; depth perception; interpersonal zones; motion parallax; personal space; pictorial depth cues; visual perception.
