Intuitions and introspections about imagery: the role of imagery experience in shaping an investigator's theoretical views
Early in a scientific debate, before much evidence has accumulated, why are some scientists inclined toward one position and other scientists toward the opposite position? We explore this issue withExpand

The Inner Eye and the Inner Scribe of Visuo-spatial Working Memory: Evidence from Developmental Fractionation
An experiment is reported which explored the possible dissociation between visual and spatial working memory in children. Children aged 5–6, 8–9 and 11–12 years were given a recognition memory testExpand
