Abstract

The aim of this research was to study the spatial analysis ability in children with Mental Retardation (MR) in a drawing task, using hierarchical meaningful pattens. We expected that meaning would interact with the global precedence principle advocated by Navon (1977), enhancing therefore a local analysis when meaning was indentified at the local level, and not at the gloal level. Furthermore, we aimed at confirming that children with mental retadation have a major global bias because some contradictory results exist in the literature 86 MR children in Indonesia (32 girls) aged 6 to 14 participated in the study. Four patterns introducing meaningful stimuli and non meaningful stumuli in the global or local level were given to children, who were asked to copy them as accurately as possible. The results showed that global responses dominated whatever age and IQ and that thet were not influenced by stimuli meaning
