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.

  • 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.
