What is the difference between mental representation and psychological process?
Mental representation is the mental imagery of things that are not currently seen or sensed by the sense organs. In our minds we often have images of objects, events and settings. For example, if you were asked to recall last year's Eid party, you could probably remember the people, the place, things that you saw and maybe even the things you smelled. You cannot actually smell and see those things but you can imagine them.
Psychological processes refer to performing any type of activity that we use а variety of processes like thinking, remembering, problem solving, interpretation etc. Thus, if you study а lesson, or discuss а topic, you are using psychological processes.< Back to Questions
