Consciousness, Learning, And Control

This line aims to shed light on how the brain affords consciousness. Central questions are:

  1. How does consciousness interacts with attention?

  2. What is the role of the different attentional networks in conscious vs. unconscious processing?

  3. Does unconscious information influence human decision making?

  4. Does unconscious information activate semantic representations?
