Michel Denis

Space and Spatial Cognition:

A Multidisciplinary Perspective

New York/Abingdon, UK: Routledge (2018)

This is a deeply revised and updated version of my 2016 book. Which mental capacities do people mobilize when confronted with space? Which brain functions do they implement? How do digital technologies extend these capacities? The book provides a unique insight into all facets of spatial cognition, including spatial behavior, language, and the use of navigational aids.

Petit Traité de l’Espace:

Un Parcours Pluridisciplinaire

Bruxelles: Mardaga (2016)

Using a multidisciplinary approach which draws on psychology, neuroscience, geography, architecture, and the visual arts, I examine the issue of the mental representation of space. By presenting space at the crossroads of a number of disciplines, this volume reveals how each of them enhances our understanding of human behavior in space. In 2017, the book was awarded the Prix Dagnan-Bouveret by the Académie des Sciences Morales et Politiques (Institut de France).

Image et Cognition

Paris: Presses Universitaires de France (1989)

It was a rewarding experience for me as a French psychologist to have a book published in the Series « Psychologie d’Aujourd’hui » of the Presses Universitaires de France. Translating it into English was made much easier by my collaboration with Connie Greenbaum, a dedicated « polisher » of my English for many years.

Les Images Mentales

Paris: Presses Universitaires de France (1979)

I am grateful to Paul Fraisse for encouraging me to write this book for the Series « Le Psychologue » of which he was director at that time. A few years later, when the seminal book by Jean-Pierre Changeux, L’Homme Neuronal, was published, I was both surprised and proud to discover that Les Images Mentales was the only book by a French psychologist to be cited (in Chapter 5, « Les Objets Mentaux »).
