dc.description.abstractSpatial memory is the part of memory devoted to the storage and retrieval of spatial information such as location, distance, and orientation. A quasi-experimental study assessed the spatial memory ability of 26 undergraduate students who participated in a sport that runs plays in high school and 21 undergraduates who played no such sport. Participants completed the Rey Complex Figure Test (Meyers & Meyers, 1995; Rey, 1941) and a short sport history questionnaire. A t-test for independent measures revealed no significant differences between the performance of the athlete and non-athlete group on the Recall Trials of the Test, suggesting there may be no difference in spatial memory ability between the two groups.en_US
