Abstract

Spatial ability refers to a group of cognitive functions to spatial tasks, which is considered as an important factor in human intelligence. Several studies report that low spatial learners must devote many cognitive resources to hold the images in working memory, but high spatial ability learners can hold images in working memory without expending many cognitive resources. We researched the effect of 2D or 3D display mode to the mental rotation test performance of different spatial ability subjects. Although the result revealed that 3D display mode would not affect the accuracy of MRT performance, Three D display mode might decrease the response time of low spatial ability subjects. After expending the number of subjects, the result would support the ability-as-compensator hypothesis.
