A series of experiments have examined whether spatial information (i.e., location of objects within a room) that is encoded at different points in time is readily integrated into a single mental representation during learning or whether the time of encoding is used to distinguish information and keep them in distinct representations. Overall, our findings support the idea that when encoding locations people weigh probabilistically all available cues, including temporal, to structure their spatial memories.
