This thematic series, published in Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, focuses on the field of medical image perception, broadly defined.
Imagery is ubiquitous in medicine, from screening mammograms to the displays on equipment monitoring patient status. The use of these images raises issues of both practical and basic interest. Sometimes these can be studies with medical professionals as the subject population. In other cases, the fundamental issues are studied using non-expert populations with an eye toward eventual testing with experts.
