The nature of imagery

Consciousness and Cognition 2 (1):58-82 (1993)
Abstract
I contend that influential, computational theories have failed to relate the subjective and information processing dimensions of imagery. Hampson and Morris′s account of the phenomenology of imagery is evaluated, and I reject the proposal that the sensuous quality of images is reducible to the specificity of corresponding representations. A selective literature review suggests necessary information processing conditions for sensuous objects-for-awareness to emerge, and these conditions inform development of a theory explicating conscious perception and sensuous imagery in terms of a self-regulating cognitive system employing a verification procedure to control resource allocation. Functions of sensuous imagery are discussed
