Abstract

We argue that the field has moved forward from the old debate about "analogical" versus "symbolic" processing. First, it is questionable that there is a strong a priori argument for assuming a common processing mode. Second, we explore the possibility that imagery is not a unitary mental function. Finally, we discuss the empirical basis of the involvement of primary areas.
