Merikle, Philip M.; Smilek, Daniel; Eastwood, John D.
Cognition, v79 n1-2 p115-34 Apr 2001
Describes experimental approaches used to demonstrate perception without awareness. Maintains that experimental findings based on all four approaches lead to the conclusion that stimuli are perceived even when observers are unaware of the stimuli. Asserts that future research should assess the functions of information perceived without awareness in determining what is perceived with awareness. (Author/KB)
