Has anyone else had ECT trigger aphantasia, along with other memory deficits?
Thanks,

I have not, interesting question though, I have also contemplated if trans-cranial stimulation might be helpful in reconnecting the hind and fore brain in regards to visualizing, had not thought of that in the reverse.

An MRI might be better if you can concentrate enough during the experience to complete tasks for comparisons or which areas fire compare to a "normal" brain but you'd probably need to have it task orientated to get a true idea of what happens in that individual and repeat with others to see if there is a pattern or if it's person specific

I don't think it affected aphantasia but it did block some long term memories.
