"Implicit cognition" refers to the learning, memory, and performance processes which take place without the subject's conscious awareness. A well known example is patients under anesthesia who show some retention of the surgeons' conversations though they cannot verbally recall it. Yet researchers disagree widely over the importance, and even the existence, of implicit cognition as an issue in human psychology. This book brings together several internationally known authors with conflicting views on the subject, providing a lively and informative overview of this fascinating area.
