Spatial models of imagery for remembered scenes are more likely to advance (neuro)science than symbolic ones
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (2):185-186 (2002)
AbstractHemispatial neglect in imagery implies a spatially organised representation. Reaction times in memory for arrays of locations from shifted viewpoints indicate processes analogous to actual bodily movement through space. Behavioral data indicate a privileged role for this process in memory. A proposed spatial mechanism makes contact with direct recordings of the representations of location and orientation in the mammalian brain.
