Abstract

This paper analyzes the spatial memory performance of 495 subjects. Both short-term and long-term memory have been analyzed by means of the Corsi block-tapping test. We provide separate norms for the learning of a supra-span sequence according to the level of spatial short-term memory. The long-term memory of males and females was compared in groups matched for spatial short-term memory, and the gender effect was never found to be significant. This finding is discussed in relation to the nature of sex differences in spatial abilities.
