This chapter begins with a discussion of how visual mental imagery has progressed from a time of introspective analysis alone to the examination of the brain circuitry that underlies it. This sets the stage for a discussion of the possible relevance of imagery research for health. Topics covered include mental simulation of aversive events, imagery and cognitive restructuring, and imagery and mind-body interactions.

Keywords:   interdisciplinary research, mental images, perception, visual systems, mental simulation, imagery, cognitive restructuring
