When conducting in situ wayfinding experiments we observed that for a variety of reasons, subjects failed to consider information that was relevant to the navigation task at hand even though that information appeared to be readily available. Likely reasons for the failure to notice include location of the subject, the orientation of the subject's body relative to relevant information, as well as a range of issues related to both physiology and psychology of perception. Drawing from a body of literature on understanding and modelling human information behaviour in information science we note that as yet there is no coherent theory of information behaviour being an embodied activity. Building such a theory will require substantial, cross-disciplinary efforts linking work across information science, psychology, biology, and neuroscience, to name a few.
