The 1st annual meeting of the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness (ASSC 1)

What does implicit cognition tell us about consciousness? (ASSC 1)

June 13-16, 1997

The phenomena of implicit cognition, implicit memory, implicit learning, unconscious perception, blindsight, and so on have attracted widespread attention in recent years. This is partly because of their intrinsic interest, and partly because the study of these processes holds great promise as an empirical method for investigating consciousness. But although research in these areas has proliferated, the connections between this research and issues about consciousness have not yet been fully articulated. What have we learned about the conscious mind from the study of implicit cognition? This conference addressed this question, drawing systematic connections between implicit cognition and consciousness.
