Spatial processing

Spatial processing describes the ability to imagine objects and move them in front of the inner eye, for example by rotation. This includes the ability to mentally convert two-dimensional objects into three-dimensional ones and to switch between different perspectives.

Disorders occur as a result of a wide variety of brain dysfunctions and are associated with considerable everyday problems.

Why spatial processing is an important criterion for neuropsychology?

Spatial processing is the ability to picture objects in one’s mind and if necessary manipulate them mentally (e.g. rotate them). It thus involves being able to convert two-dimensionally represented objects into three-dimensional ones in one’s mind and to switch between different views of them.

Spatial processing ability is often impaired in the wake of brain function impairments of varying genesis and can cause sufferers significant difficulty in everyday life.
