This chapter summarizes the experiments that have contributed to documenting the functional and structural similarities between mental images and the perceptual events from which they are formed. It explores the neural substrate mediating mental navigation and mental exploration following different modes of perceptual learning. It describes the central network of topographical representations. It also evaluates the importance of the nature of information used to form mental images.

Keywords:   mental images, perceptual events, mental navigation, mental exploration, neural substrate, topographical representations
