    Imaginative Imagery: Some authors, portray imaginative imagery as the process which is used to solve problems. It is the creative side of thought. It is the creative side of thought. In other descriptions, imaginative imagery is described as a creative process, but is relatively involuntary, occurring at sub-conscious levels and being expressed.   Scientists have found how to make people hallucinate, and how to measure what they see imagery and hallucinations are good examples of mental health symptoms that are difficult to measure. Recent work on the mechanisms underlying auditory verbal hallucination (AVH) has been heavily informed by self-monitoring accounts that postulate defects in an internal monitoring mechanism as the basis of AVH. A more neglected alternative is an account focusing on defects in auditory processing, namely a spontaneous activation account of auditory activity underlying . example, the relationships between hallucinations, mental imagery and perception; between the generation and reception of images; and, most challenging of all, the nature of belief and reality. In fact, the study of hallucinations was, for me, a salutary 1 This foreword is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Tony Nayani (Ð).File Size: 8MB.
