Cognitive Map

Cognitive Map

A cognitive map is a mental representation of the layout of one’s environment. It seems that many animals, not just humans, are able to form a mental representation of an environment that they have been in or are currently in. For example, when a friend asks you for directions to your house, you are able to create an image in your mind of the roads, places to turn, landmarks, etc., along the way to your house from your friend’s starting point. This representation is the cognitive map.
