Contents:
Imagery and Spatial Cognition; Editorial page; Title page; LCC data; Table of contents; List of contributors; Introduction; Methodology of imagery and visuo-spatial functions; Early methods for assessing imagery and nonverbal abilities; The assessment of imagery and visuo-spatial working memory functions in children and adults; Do we only remember where we left our things when we expect to need them again?; Variations on the image scanning paradigm; The use of transcranial magnetic stimulation in spatial cognition; Models and components of imagery and visuo-spatial processes.
Summary: The relationships between perception and imagery, imagery and spatial processes, memory and action: these are the main themes of this text. The interest in experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience on imagery and spatial cognition has remarkably increased in the last decades. Different areas of research contribute to the clarification of the multiple cognitive processes subserving spatial perception and exploration, and to the definition of the neurophysiological mechanisms underpinning these cognitive functions. The aim of this book is to provide the reader (post-graduate students as.
