Scaled worlds as research tools: A demonstration

Efforts to study cognition in complex, dynamic environments can be hampered by difficulty in accurately tracking information flow. This problem can be tackled by studying task performance in the context of a scaled world-an abstracted version of the task environment designed to elucidate information flow while maintaining the critical elements of that environment. This demonstration will illustrate a scaled world developed for research on submariner situation assessment and is a companion to Ehret, Kirschenbaum and Gray, "Contending with Complexity: The Development and Use of Scaled Worlds as Research Tools" (this volume).
