TWO CLASSES OF MENTAL SPATIAL TRANSFORMATION CAN BE DISTINGUISHED: Object-based spatial transformations are imagined movements of objects; and egocentric perspective transformations are imagined movements of one's point of view. The hypothesis that multiple neural systems contribute to these mental imagery operations was tested with functional MRI. Participants made spatial judgments about pictures of human bodies, and brain activity was analyzed as a function of the judgment required and the… CONTINUE READING
