    Abstract

    We investigated individual differences in interactively exploring previous term3D virtual objects.next term 36 participants explored 24 simple and 24 difficult previous objects (composed of respectively three and five Biederman geons) actively, passively, or not at all. Both their previous term3Dnext term mental representation of the previous objectsnext term and visuo-spatial ability was assessed. Results show that, regardless of the previous object’s complexity, people with a low VSA benefit from active exploration of previous objects,next term where people with a middle or high VSA do not. These findings extend and refine earlier research on interactively learning visuo-spatial information and underline the importance to take individual differences into account.
