Updating the story of mental time travel: narrating and engaging with our possible pasts and futures

Chapter


Abstract


  • "Mental time travel" refers to the everyday ability to think about events in one's past or possible future as events in one's own past or possible future. Through mental time travel one "wanders" away from the present to travel to other points within one's own timeline (Corballis 2012).
