Diamond, 1988). Similar methodological issues apply equally to animal and human research, for example, the analysis of item and order information in radial search paradigms (Dale, 1987), the quantification of choice behaviour in multiple choice tasks (see Foreman and Ermakova, Chapter 4, this Volume) and definitions of "representation" in child studies (see Liben, Chapter 1 of Volume 1) and in animal studies (Roitblat, 1982). Furthermore, much animal work is, directly or indirectly, aimed at understanding human spatial disorders that characterise Korsakov's amnesia, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's dementia and other conditions involving disruption of spatial behaviour (Olton, 1982; see Hodges, Chapter 6 in this volume).
