Inner vision: seeing the minds eye


Abstract
Does imagining a visual pattern involve the same mechanisms as actually seeing that pattern? If so, what are the functional consequences of this overlap? A new study shows that the simple act of imagining a visual pattern can change subsequent visual perception in a manner specific to the low-level perceptual mechanisms. This work is strong evidence that imagery involves mechanisms closely resembling those of normal visual perception
