For example, we can "see" things in our mind’s eye, "hear" sounds in our mind’s ear, and imagine motor experiences like running away from, or perhaps "freezing" in the face of, danger. Since the early 1900s, researchers have investigated "mental imagery" or the multimodal cognitive simulation process by which we represent perceptual information in our minds in the absence of sensory input.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Frontiers||Journal:||Frontiers in Psychiatry||Volume:||6||Issue:||23||Copyright (published version):||2015 the Authors||Keywords:||Motor imagery; Mental imagery; Post-traumatic stress disorder; Personality disorders; Social anxiety disorder||DOI:||10.3389/fpsyt.2015.00023||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
