To determine why some people cannot create visual images of people, places and things in their mind’s eye, UNSW scientists are planning to conduct a world-first brain imaging study of people with this baffling condition, known as congenital aphantasia.

A team led by UNSW Associate Professor Joel Pearson has launched a crowd-funding campaign to raise money to carry out functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies to try and understand the neurological basis of mental imagery.

The proposed fMRI study will try to uncover any structural and functional differences in the brains of people with aphantasia.

People who think they have aphantasia and are interested in participating in the research can contact the laboratory at aphantasia@pearsonlab.org.

The project is being crowd-funded on the everyday hero platform for those interested in contributing to the research.
