Neuroimaging Studies of Mental Rotation: A Meta-analysis and Review

  title={Neuroimaging Studies of Mental Rotation: A Meta-analysis and Review},
  author={Jeffrey M. Zacks},
  journal={Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience},
Mental rotation is a hypothesized imagery process that has inspired controversy regarding the substrate of human spatial reasoning. Two central questions about mental rotation remain: Does mental rotation depend on analog spatial representations, and does mental rotation depend on motor simulation? A review and meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies help answer these questions. Mental rotation is accompanied by increased activity in the intraparietal sulcus and adjacent regions. These areas… CONTINUE READING
