Visualization, Forming Mental Images and Episodic Memory: Updates to Come.2010 September 10
If you are unable to visualize or form mental images (including recall of past events), I hope you will be interested in the upcoming changes to this site:
- I am considering setting up an online support forum. If you are interested, please read the following post and leave a comment there (not here, please about this): http://porillion.wordpress.com/2010/09/10/do-you-want-a-support-forum-if-you-cannot-visualise/
- In the two years since I first wrote about my own experience with a loss of the ability to visualize and an inability to recall visual past events, many people have commented and I have now found quite a lot of new research into episodic memory, visualization, projection into the future, and so on. I am now in the process of putting that together to update this information. You will be able to start, as now, from the Visualization FAQs page, from which I will link to a new series of posts. The evidence is consistent with the set of problems that people have reported, and it may now be possible to begin suggesting medical and non-medical causes; though there does not yet appear to be any one such. It may also help anyone wishing to raise the problems with their family doctor or a specialist, as I will then be able to give links to that research.
- I will create a dedicated post from which you can comment, if you wish, with your own experiences. This seems a better approach than the old one where people commented all over the place. More on that later.
