  • mental imagery is the psychological term for those aspects of thought which are represented by images in the mind. The 'mental' distinguishes it from external imagery which can be seen with the eyes. The question seems to be whether mental imagery is restricted to visual images and I tend to think not. It can be applied to any impressions formed in the mind which have visual components, but I can see someone talking about "the music contributed to her mental imagery of far-away tropical islands".
