The relationships between perception and imagery, imagery and spatial processes, memory and action: these are the main themes of this text. The interest in experimental psychology and cognitive neuroscience on imagery and spatial cognition has remarkably increased in the last decades. Different areas of research contribute to the clarification of the multiple cognitive processes subserving spatial perception and exploration, and to the definition of the neurophysiological mechanisms underpinning these cognitive functions. The aim of this book is to provide the reader (post-graduate students as well as experts) with a complete overview of this field of research. It illustrates how brain, behaviour and cognition interact in normal and pathological subjects in perceiving, representing and exploring space.(Series B)

Table of Contents
“Prepared for post-gradute students as well as experts this provides a complete overview, illustrating how brain, behavior and cognition interact in normal and pathological subjects in perceiving, representing and exploring space.”
“The chapters in this volume cover a very broad range of topics under the heading of imagery and spatial cognition, a range that may be broader than the typical researcher in spatial cognition is usually be concerned with. [...] The truly ambitious would try to read the entire book to appreciate how many different pieces there are to the jigsaw puzzle that is spatial cognition.”
