This book explores and evaluates the validity of the implicit/explicit distinction, and the extent to which this distinction can be used to account for a range of unconscious processes in perception, memory, learning, and thinking. Also emphasized are the methodological difficulties that are encountered in attempting to demonstrate cognition without awareness.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Underwood provides a useful review and current extension of the implicit memory and cognition literature."--Choice

"Thirteen eminent researchers present discussions of different aspects of implicit cognition, a developing area which includes the study of all behavior which is influenced by information not available to consciousness . . . . Each chapter serves as a review of a related set of findings and usefully lists large numbers of references . . . . In the words of Underwood, the chapters 'provide a detailed view of the variety of different approaches currently being used to tackle the problems of justifying the implicit-explicit distinction and in determining the extent of its usefulness.'"--Psychological Reports
