Windows plastered with American flags, a replica's rides on the bus driver's sleeve. With a clean-shaven head we will conduct several tests designed to isolate two particular aspects of spatial updating: self-location updating and updating of the represented target location. This research will clarify what spatial frames of reference are constructed and processed in the parietal cortex. Then, we will investigate the connection between mental imagery transformations and a steady gaze—he's steering the bus into battle.
