Representation is a term used in cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and cognitive science to refer to a hypothetical internal cognitive symbol that represents external reality. David Marr defines representation as "a formal system for making explicit certain entities or types of information, together with a specification of how the system does this."[1] Representationalism (also known as indirect realism) is the view that representations are the main way we access external reality.
