    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;We examined whether spatial representations for scenes experienced on the screens of mobile devices are orientation dependent&lt;br&gt;
and whether the type of movement (physical vs. simulated) during learning affects the encoding and the retrieval of&lt;br&gt;
spatial information. Participants studied a spatial layout depicted on a tablet and then carried out perspective-taking trials&lt;br&gt;
in which they localized objects from imagined perspectives. Depending on condition, participants either rotated the tablet&lt;br&gt;
along with their body or remained stationary and swiped with their finger on the screen to change their viewpoint within&lt;br&gt;
the scene. Results showed that participants were faster and more accurate to point to objects from an imagined perspective&lt;br&gt;
that was aligned than misaligned to their initial physical orientation during learning, suggesting that they had formed an&lt;br&gt;
orientation-dependent representation. Although no differences were found between movement conditions during pointing,&lt;br&gt;
participants were faster to encode spatial information with physical than simulated movement.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
