Research title
The role of conscious perception in high-level processing

Research project

Recent findings in the field of consciousness seem to push the scope of unconscious processing far beyond simple, low-level processing. These findings typically emanate from an experimental paradigm that allows investigating whether high-level processing of unconscious information is at all possible, but is mute on the question of what mental operations are modulated by conscious perception and to what extent – which is the crucial issue for understanding the function of consciousness.
My project aims to further investigate the role of consciousness in high-level processing by applying both behavioral and electrophysiological measures. This goal will be achieved by addressing some of the fundamental methodological challenges in investigating unconscious information processing.
