Aphantasia is a newly named condition that was first identified by Sir Francis Galton in 1880.
To simply define aphantasia, Aphantasia is where a person is unable to create imagery in their mind's eye. People with Aphantasia are unable to synthesise senses in their mind.
Aphantasia appears to be a spectrum condition where the degree of Aphantasia varies, just like the degree to which non Aphantasmics can visualise to differing amounts.
Certain people are unable to create any images, sounds, tastes, smells or touch within their mind. This is known as Total Aphantasia.
Research to Aphantasia is at an early stage, so the more people we can find the better placed we are to start making progress into understanding this condition.
