I present two models of mental rotation created within the ACT-R theory of cognition, each of which implements one of the two main strategies identified in the literature. A holistic strategy rotates mental images as a whole unit whereas piecemeal strategy decomposes the mental image into pieces and rotates them individually. Both models provide a close fit to human response time data from a recent study of mental rotation strategies conducted by Khooshabeh, Hegarty, and Shipley (2013). This work provides an account of human mental rotation data and in so doing, tests a new proposal for representing and processing spatial information to model mental imagery in ACT-R.
