Mental Imagery

I found this video on mental imagery. It was really interesting because they found that in their experiment with describing a picture after you see it while staring at a blank white screen, you describe it and your eyes move as if you were still looking at the actual picture. It also talks about how blind people also have mental imagery although they can not see. They are able to imagine things although they have never actually seen them. This relates to class because it talks about mental imagery and shows how the brain works when reciting what you have seen.

One thought on “Mental Imagery

  1. This video is really interesting! The experiment done in this video looks similar to the study by Perky (1910) described in the text book. I had hard time understanding his study but after watching this video, it all makes sense! I believe this video also showed other principles of visual imagery, such as implicit encoding and spatial equivalence. This video is really helpful.
