Because navigation produces readily observable actions, it provides an important window into how perception and reasoning support intelligent behavior. This paper summarizes recent results in navigation from the perspectives of cognitive neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and cognitive robotics. Together they argue for the significance of a learned spatial cognitive model. The feasibility of such a model for navigation is demonstrated, and important issues raised for a standard model of the mind.
