According to psychologists, mental imagery is a product of mental activity. When this product presents high levels of creativity and originality, it is usually referred to as “fantasy” or “imagination.” On the other side, when this mental product concerns mainly the recall and/or production of events or objects that are very close to their actual perception, than we use properly the term of “mental imagery.”

Abstract

According to psychologists, mental imagery is a product of mental activity. When this product presents high levels of creativity and originality, it is usually referred to as “fantasy” or “imagination.” On the other side, when this mental product concerns mainly the recall and/or production of events or objects that are very close to their actual perception, than we use properly the term of “mental imagery.”
