EIDETISM - A REVIEW OF THEORETIC CONCEPTIONS AND RESEARCH


Abstract. Do some people have imagery as vivid as perception? If yes, does their imag-
cry influence other aspects of cognitive functioning? Is such imagery abilities common
in children and disappear with age? How to check, if somebody is characterized by
eidetism? Psychologists' interest in this phenomenon appeared as soon as the beginning
of the XX century, but still many questions remain open. The paper presents a review
of theoretic conceptions and research concerning eidetism, the early ones, and more
recent.
