Spatial cognition is a broad field of inquiry, emerging from a wide range of disciplines, and incorporating a wide variety of paradigms that have been employed with human and animal subjects. The contributing authors in both volumes of this Handbook are highly respected international authorities in their fields, with many years of experience, who describe and review the major paradigms used in their research area. In Volume 2, authors consider the related issues of neurophysiological aspects of spatial cognition, the assessment of cognitive spatial deficits arising from neural damage in humans and animals, and the observation of spatial behaviors in animals in their natural habitats. Both this volume and the previously released Volume 1, should be of interest to new and old students alike; the student new to spatial research can be brought up-to-speed with a particular range of techniques, made aware of the background and pitfalls of particular approaches, and directed toward useful sources. Forseasoned researchers they provide a rapid scan of the currently available tools that they might consider as alternatives when wishing to answer a particular "spatial" research problem.
