Description: In the current confirmatory study, we conducted two experiments that examined the role of gesture in reinterpreting a mental image. In the first experiment, we observed that participants gestured more about figures they had learned through manual exploration than about figures they had learned through vision. Experiment 2 investigated whether such gestures have a causal role in affecting the quality of mental imagery by manipulating participants’ gesture activity.
