How information is processed after being conscious.

Updated: May 29, 2022

Studying the "Study of Consciousness" (Stanislas Duanne) can further deepen your understanding of coaching theory.

I am studying to add a unique flavour to "unconscious rewriting".

This series of blog posts are my study notes. This time, the theme that follows the unconscious and conscious

I will write a "sign of consciousness".

The article about the unconscious (41 tables of contents) is here.

Here are 12 articles about consciousness.


It is interesting to understand whether information causes special brain events, brain waves, and vibrations after the information has risen from the unconscious to the conscious.

So far, we have seen the reaction to unconscious and conscious information, but now we will look at how the information is processed after becoming conscious.

Experiments show that in the early stages of receiving information, the visual cortex activity occurs regardless of whether the image is conscious or not. All images activate the primary visual cortex and the surrounding area.

I Thank the brain imaging method. What has been considered we can now solve a mystery of consciousness in this way?

I found that even the higher visual cortex is activated without consciousness. Higher areas of the temporal and parietal lobes, such as the recognition that "piano" and "PIANO" are the same word or that the numbers "3" and "three" represent the same number. The very abstract brain actions involved can also work sensibly.

The first sign of conscious perception is robust ignition across the dispersed brain regions, including the prefrontal cortex and parietal region on both the left and right sides.

As shown in the picture above, the words obscured by masking activate the reading-specific areas of the neural circuit.

As shown in the lower row, when the subject is aware of the word, a significant amplification is caused in the area extending to the parietal lobe and the prefrontal cortex. Similarly, the auditory cortex is activated by the sound's unconscious sound. Still, when the same sound is conscious, the activity spreads over a wide area of ​​the lower parietal region and prefrontal cortex.

In the early stages of the visual cortex, activity occurs regardless of whether the image is conscious or not. The primary visual cortex and the surrounding area are activated by all images, regardless of the degree of masking.

In contrast, in the higher visual centres in the cortex of the fusiform gyrus and the lateral occipital, temporal region, there is a correlation between the subject's visibility and brain activation.

These areas are involved in classifying images such as faces, objects, words, and places and generating constant representations of their appearance. I found that when the activation of the brain reaches this level, the image seems to be conscious.
