This article focuses on the neural and cognitive processes that support imagining or simulat-
ing future events, a topic that has recently emerged in the forefront of cognitive neuroscience.
We begin by considering concepts of simulation from a number of areas of psychology and cog-
nitive neuroscience in order to place our use of the term in a broader context. We then review
