Event details

Both perception and mental imagery are fundamental to our lives.

But in what precise respects do the two have a common nature? For instance, to what extent are core functional, phenomenological and neurobiological properties of perception shared by mental imagery (and vice versa)? In this one-day interdisciplinary conference, philosophers and psychologists will join together at Southampton to discuss these, and other, foundational questions about perception, mental imagery and the various relations between them.

Attendance is free and open to all, but you must register to attend by emailing Dan Cavedon-Taylor.
