3D versus view-based models

The debate over 3D versus non-3D ('view-based' theories, if you like) pervades these pages (task, slant and depth relief, distance). Here, I will pick out some papers that draw a distinction between models assuming the brain generates a Cartesian representation (3D reconstruction) and those that do not (so-called 'view-based' models), starting with Duval (2019) in Cognition which explores the implications of the fact that mice often choose a corner diagonally opposite the correct one to look for remembered hidden food.
