|Title:||Is conscious perception gradual or dichotomous? A comparison of report methodologies during a visual task||Contributor(s):||Overgaard, M (author); Rote, Julian Andrew (author); Mouridsen, K (author); Zoega Ramsoy, T (author)||Publication Date:||2006||DOI:||10.1016/j.concog.2006.04.002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1697||Abstract:||In a recent article, [Sergent, C. & Dehaene, S. (2004). Is consciousness a gradual phenomenon? Evidence for an all-or-none bifurcation during the attentional blink, Psychological Science, 15(11), 720–729] claim to give experimental support to the thesis that there is a clear transition between conscious and unconscious perception. This idea is opposed to theoretical arguments that we should think of conscious perception as a continuum of clarity, with e.g., fringe conscious states [Mangan, B. (2001). Sensation’s ghost—the non-sensory “fringe” of consciousness, Psyche, 7, 18]. In the experimental study described in this article, we find support for this opposite notion that we should have a parsimonious account of conscious perception. Our reported finding relates to the hypothesis that there is more than one perceptual threshold [Merikle, P.M., Smilek, D. & Eastwood, J.D. (2001). Perception without awareness: perspectives from cognitive psychology, Cognition, 79, 115–134], but goes further to argue that there are different “levels” of conscious perception.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Consciousness and Cognition, 15(4), p. 700-708||Publisher:||Academic Press||Place of Publication:||United States||ISSN:||1053-8100||Field of Research (FOR):||170112 Sensory Processes, Perception and Performance||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 187
