Are you a researcher or scientist currently studying aphantasia, hyperphantasia, or extreme imagination – get in touch! We’d love to learn more about your work and how we can help.

I am a PhD student at Yale, studying visual perceptioin and cognition. I also have aphantaisia and I’m hoping to begin doing reserach on it. I’m currenlty trying to build a subject pool, so anyone interested in being contacted can email me at [email protected]

I am currently doing a research project at the University of Exeter looking at the relationship between extremes of visual imagery and autism.

There is a link to the survey in a separate discussion post.
