The widely demonstrated ability of humans to deal with multiple representations of information has a number of important implications for a proposed standard model of the mind (SMM). In this paper we outline four and argue that a SMM must incorporate (a) multiple representational formats and (b) meta-cognitive processes that operate on them. We then describe current approaches to extend cognitive architectures with visual-spatial representations, in part to illustrate the limitations of current architectures in relation to the implications we raise but also to identify the basis upon which a consensus about the nature of these additional representations can be agreed. We believe that addressing these implications and outlining a specification for multiple represen- tations should be a key goal for those seeking to develop a standard model of the mind.
