Mental imagery strongly influences the experience of emotion and many psychological disorders manifest distressing abnormalities in mental imagery. During adolescence, neurocognitive development impacting mental imagery processes may moderate its relationship with clinically-relevant emotional symptoms that could affect mental imagery. The aim of this work is to use fMRI to explore the networks underlying emotional imagery and to do this during the adolescence by exploring the interaction between the emotional and motor imagery by using a letter detection task acting as a control.
