Extreme Imagination Conference
The conference, which took place between 5 and 7 April 2019, was a result of research by the Eye’s Mind team, including by Professor Adam Zeman (Neurology, University of Exeter College of Medicine and Health), Professor Fiona Macpherson (Philosophy, University of Glasgow), Dr Crawford Winlove (Neuroscience, University of Exeter), Professor John Onians (Art History, University of East Anglia), and Dr Matthew MacKisack (Cultural History, University of Exeter).
The conference was one of the many public responses by the Eye's Mind team, recognising the need for people to connect and share knowledge and information about a subject that clearly resonates strongly with many people. Over the course of the conference, participants heard from the Eye's Mind project leaders about the current research pertaining to Aphantasia and Hyperphantasia across disciplines of Neurology, Psychology, Neuroscience, Philosophy, and Art and Culture.
The participants also took part in a range of workshops and break out groups to learn and share, contributing and sharing their own experiences with both researchers and each other.
