This article reviews the synergy between a number of differing academic disciplines with reference to the study of spatial cognition. It identifies three potential areas for future collaboration: understanding the relationships between the form of the physical world and mental representations, linking space to action, and creating alternative methods and approaches for studying environmental cognition. After discussing the possibilities for collaboration within each of these areas, the article continues by reviewing in detail the articles contained within this special edition. An attempt is made to identify common ground and links between the different articles, illustrating how they might relate both to each other and to the areas of future research identified earlier.
