Is perceptual awareness objective or subjective?
2006 (English)In: Visual masking and the dynamics of vision and consciousness at Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg: 27-30 June, 2006. Delmenhorst, Germany., 2006Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
When pictures are masked, people can discriminate among them even though they may claim that they are not consciously aware of the pictures. In deciding whether people are actually aware of the pictures, it is debated whether measures based on discrimination ability (objective measures) are preferable to measures of self-reported subjective experience (subjective measures). The present paper discusses commonly used indexes and relates them to contemporary concepts of phenomenal, access, and reflexive consciousness. Because objective and subjective measures capture different aspects of consciousness, their comprehensive use is recommended.
