Overview

Visual Masking: Time Slices through Conscious and Unconscious Vision / Edition 2

Our visual system can process information at both conscious and unconscious levels. Understanding the factors that control whether a stimulus reaches our awareness, and the fate of those stimuli that remain at an unconscious level, are the major challenges of brain science in the new millennium. The substantially revised new edition of this classic text explores temporal aspects of both conscious and unconscious processes.
