How can the observations of spatial blocking (Rodrigo, Chamizo, McLaren & Mackintosh, 1997) and cue redundancy (O’Keefe and Conway, 1978) be reconciled within the framework provided by an error-correcting, connectionist account of spatial navigation? I show that an implementation of McLaren’s (1995) better beta model can serve this purpose, and examine some of the implications for spatial learning and memory.
