I will pay for the following article Aspects of Visual Imagery. The work is to be 6 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. Nevertheless, most of the mystery remains unresolved. There exists a controversy not only on the role of the neural and cognitive mechanism during imagery but also over the function it plays in cognition if any (Richardson, 2009). Some of the researchers regard mental imagery as the platform for all thoughts. some regard it as necessary for given cognitive tasks such as judgment on spatial relationships and yet other scientists regard it as functionally unimportant of the unconscious cognitive process that constitutes how we think.
Just like an object which is perceived, mental images bear intentionality. In concept, it means there is always a real image of the perceived imaginary object by the brain. Some of the philosophers argue that consciousness and intentionality to be somewhat related. Nevertheless, unlike in the object perceived by the mind, mental images occur in absence of their object (Morris & Hampson, 2003). To emphasize the point, it is hard to perceive a cat when no cat exists but one can imagine a cat or other perceptible thing at any given time. Furthermore, one cannot perceive the image of a cat other than how it actually looks like but whenever one wants it. it is possible to imagine that image of a cat anywhere or in any given condition (Richardson, 2009).
Hence, images seem well suited to work as mental representations enabling us to think of things they way they are currently not and thus plan for the future, recall the past, reflect on about the unknown, and fantasies about the unreal world. The ability to see things using the “mind eye” has been from ancient times known to be part of cognitive function.
Most scholars refer to Visual imagery as a form of experience, the experience that subjectively resembles the experience one have when actually perceived something.
