Visuospatial Sketchpad

We can image scenes or experiences from the past or imagining the future because of the visuospatial sketchpad.

## Notes - The visuospatial sketchpad is the mind's eye. - You can imagine scenes or experiences from the past or imagining the future because of the visuospatial sketchpad. - It is a slave of the [working memory](/zettel/working-memory). - It has two main components: the **visual cache** that stores the image and the **inner scribe** that rehearses and replays visual, spatial, and motion data. - People that suffer from aphantasia can't visualize images in their heads. ## References - [David Handel, MD.
