Do you want a support forum if you “cannot visualise”?

2010 September 10

(please read the FAQ page about what I mean:

(This post is “sticky”, meaning it always appears at the top. Please scroll down for the latest post.)

I have not yet found an online forum for support for this problem, which I now feel given my complete lack of medical or other support I now need and so others may to. If you would like me to look into forming one then please comment on this post (you will have to give your e-mail address, but only I can see that). If enough people ask for it, then I will look into setting one up.

(Please state clearly that you are interested!)

Please note that although I ask you to leave your e-mail address when making your comment, it is not displayed and no-one but me can see it.


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):
  • 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.

Take care.
