Spatial organization



Concept of Spatial organization How spatial organization affects visual perception How perception influences behavior


Spatial Organization explains how different locations or physical and human objects are arranged on the earth’s surface. Spatial organization has Four components that can Be Used to Describe the location Or physical And human Objects. These Components Include Areas, points, volume And Lines.

Concept of spatial organization

Spatial organization is responsible for explaining the appearance of the environment at different locations and how they are represented on the nervous system in the brain. Spatial Organization uses the retina to imprint images on the brain by using concepts such as location, density, direction, distance and the arrangement of the object so that It can hold on to the present similarities of the patterns in the elements (Darken & Peterson, 2014).

Spatial organization and visual perception

Visual perception refers to the ability to process and provide meaning to the visual information that exists around us and the environment we are in.Spatial organization affects visual perception such that If the information interpreted in the brain is not seen properly then the information will no longer be useful (RW Fleming, 2014).Therefore, spatial organization enables visual perception to have certain components such as:Visual discrimination which is responsible for distinguishing objects based on specific details like size, shape, movement, orientation, color or their location.Visual closure which is responsible for recognizing an object without looking at it wholly. Visual memory is responsible for bringing memory of an object making it easier to remember.

Spatial organization and visual perception

Form constancy is responsible for Perceiving an object even if it takes another position or form. Spatial relations is responsible for recognizing the object’s position. Figure ground is meant to enable someone to focus on the object in question ignoring the other objects that are not relevant. Visual sequencing is however responsible for viewing objects in a specific sequence.

Perception and behavior

Perception is acquired from the processed information shared by individuals who have gone through various experiences. Thus it means that the inner Processes or exleriences have a way of affecting the surrounding environment (Donohew, Sypher & Higgins, 2015).When an individual has a perception on the environment, he or she gets a vague picture on how the environment would be based on his or her experiences. Therefore perception influences behavior in that the outcome on behavior is acquired from the


Spatial organization plays a big role when it comes to visual perception because without it the information processed will not be accurate. It is essential to understand individual perceptions because it creates an environment where their behavior towards it is improved or conducive.
