Current concerns in visual masking.
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Psychology.
2006 (English)In: Emotion, ISSN 1528-3542, Vol. 6, no 4, 675-80 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Theories of emotion postulate that emotional input is processed independently from perceptual awareness.

Although visual masking has a long tradition in studying whether emotional pictures are processed

below a supposed threshold of perceptual awareness (subliminal perception), a consensus has yet to be

reached. This article reviews current concerns in the use of visual masking. These include a reliable

presentation method, the role of masking pictures, common definitions of awareness and their problems,

current models of awareness, and neural mechanisms. A useful strategy may be the study of dose–

response relationships between awareness and emotion processing that avoids a dichotomous view of

awareness and allows conclusions about the relative independence of emotional processing from

awareness.
