Show Summary Details

Preview

Conscious attention to an object can be what causes the selection of information relating to just that object, from various specialized processing streams, to control the subject's verbal reports about that object. Therefore, the content of conscious experience has to be capable of identifying information relating to just that object in various processing streams. The evidence suggests that experience of the location of the object will be critical to allowing selection of just the right information.
