Visual Mental Images in the Brain
Overview of a Theory
This chapter outlines a neurologically plausible theory of visual mental imagery that posits depictive representations. The goal is not to review the theory in detail, but rather to provide enough information to show that depictive representations can in fact function effectively within a plausible information-processing system. It also demonstrates that neuroscientific data are in fact relevant to settling the question as to whether depictive representations are used in imagery.
