dc.description.abstract Visuospatial abilities are cognitive processes essential for activities of daily living, they allow us to safely and independently navigate and interact with our environment. These abilities have also shown a strong relationship with academic and professional development, particularly, the sub-ability of mental rotation (MR). However, there is a lack of understanding of the across the lifespan age and sex differences of MR. This is due to the multiple different measures used to assess this ability plus the diversity of age groups which have been assessed. To create a clear understanding on age and sex differences in MR, it is necessary to keep the type of measure consistent across age groups. Therefore, the purpose of this thesis was to investigate the trajectory of visuospatial abilities across the lifespan, using the hands-on brick-building MR task (BBT). The BBT provided the consistency needed to investigate across age and sex differences in visuospatial abilities. en_US
