A book intended for advanced undergraduates of psychology and neuroscience and for experimental psychologists, which presents recent and theoretical contributions to the neuropsychological approach to understanding consciousness. It brings together leading world authorities in the area to review existing literature, describe new findings, and offer contrasting approaches. Theoretical developments regarding "aware" and "unaware" processes in cognition, are discussed. Features include studies of breakdowns in awareness following brain damage, and an examination of the cognitive processes involved in perception, language, memory and attention.
