       Virtual Environments and Spatial Cognition 
Virtual Reality technology (virtual environments, VEs) represents 
a new means of approaching some old problems in psychology. 
An area that has particularly benefited is spatial cognition. 
VE software is sometimes referred to as "soft-where" because 
it is essentially spatial. Studies in the UK have variously shown that, 
despite the abnormality of VE exploration, VEs can be used as 
effective training media for individuals who suffer from spatial 
dysfunction. Examples will be provided of the use of desk-top 
VEs in training spatial skills in children with physical disabilities 
and post-retirement adults. Future potential applications, and 
difficulties, will be discussed.
