Activity: Publication peer-review and editorial workEditorial board of a journal


Imagination, Cognition and Personality is dedicated to the study of the human imagination and publishes work that focuses on cognition and mental simulation, subjective aspects of personality, and consciousness itself. Thus, topics such as retrospection and prospection, creativity, dreaming, morality, motor imagery, health-promoting imagery, sport-related imagery, archetypal imagery, the development of imaging ability, the neuroscience of memory, dissociated and false memories, memory construction, narrative construction, spatial and temporal cognition, regret and counterfactual thinking, intrapersonal communication, emotion, and individual differences in cognitive style, temperament, or personality, as well as the neural and physiological underpinnings of conscious imagery all fall within the purview of Imagination, Cognition and Personality. Since 1981, Imagination, Cognition and Personality has presented thoughtful investigations of mental images and fantasies, memory fragments and future anticipations, sensations and emotions, intrapersonal communication, and narrative constructions—all of which constitute our stream of consciousness. It has presented original scientific essays exploring the flow of conscious experience in relation to human cognition and personality, as well as to applications in psychotherapy and medicine, in education and psychological testing, and in the fine arts and other liberal arts.
