Depictive Representations in the Brain
This chapter begins by summarizing the arguments against the idea that topographically organized areas are used in visual mental imagery and the arguments that even if they are used, they play no essential role. It then addresses each argument in turn, considering counterarguments and evidence to the contrary. It discusses a meta-analysis of studies of visual mental imagery. This meta-analysis untangles what might at first appear to be inconsistencies in the literature, and provides strong support for the claim that topographically organized areas support depictive representations during visual mental imagery.
