Abstract(in English) In studies of adult participants, it has been found that “body analogy” due to embodied cues improve the performance of mental rotation tasks. The present study examined whether body analogy was also effective for children in performing mental rotation. We created a pencil-type mental rotation task and conducted for 88 elementary school children. In the task paper, standard stimuli and four rotational stimuli were horizontally aligned, and face addition on cubes and imitability to body postures were manipulated. The task was to check rotational stimuli with the same shape as the standard one. As result, correct responses increased for the imitable conditions regardless of grade. The result evidences that body analogy effectively operates on spatial cognitive performance, even in children.
