Although we typically experience the world through our own eyes, when we remember or imagine we can flexibly shift this viewpoint such that we see ourselves like an observer watching ourselves in the event. A growing number of studies have shown that the particular perspective we adopt during remembering and imagining can have consequences for our future behavior, and have also begun to investigate the neural mechanisms that support these changes. At the same time, recent advances in virtual reality methodologies have made it possible to readily manipulate visual perspective during our conscious experience, allowing researchers to ask novel questions about the role of visual perspective in embodiment and its link with memory and imagination. This special issue will bring together current research on the role of visual perspective in memory and imagination.

Proposals for Full (Regular Articles), Brief Articles, and Reviews are welcome in any cognitive domain related to visual perspective in memory and/or imagination. We particularly encourage submissions from scholars located outside Australia, Western Europe and North America.
