We examine the influence of positive compared to neutral imagery of everyday activities on behavioral motivation and attention using self-report measures and a visual probe task with concurrent eye tracking, respectively. Based on our results, we will gain insight into the cognitive mechanisms affected by positive imagery and how this may be useful for interventions based on mental imagery.
