Focuses on semantic priming and repetition from asked words on the evidence for a center-surround attentional mechanism in perceptual recognition. Use in investigating the cognitive unconscious under rigorous experimental control that would be widely applicable in a number of areas of psychological theorizing; Effects on the speed and accuracy of judgments about a subsequent target words; Roles of attention and awareness in perception.
