A team of researchers, including Professor Antti Revonsuo, have recently published an article in NeuroImage entitled ”V1 activity during feedforward and early feedback processing is necessary for both conscious and unconscious motion perception”. Briefly, the article investigates unconscious motion perception in blindsight patients (with V1 lesions), and equivalent virtual lesions in neurologically healthy subjects using TMS.
Publications over summer
Four new publications to add to the list! Our professor, Antti Revonsuo, has a new monograph coming in 2018 with the scholarly publisher Routledge, Foundations of Consciousness. According to the blurb, the book “provides an essential introduction to the scientific and philosophical approaches to consciousness for students in psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, and philosophy.” An […]
Article on visual awareness
A team of researchers including Antti Revonsuo has published an article in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience with the title “Different Electrophysiological Correlates of Visual Awareness for Detection and Identification.” In short, the article looks at the electrophysiological differences between conscious detection and conscious higher-level identification of visual stimuli.
TMS study on primary visual cortex
A team of researchers including our own Antti Revonsuo have just published a paper in NeuroImage entitled ‘Early processing in primary visual cortex is necessary for conscious and unconscious vision while late processing is necessary only for conscious vision in neurologically healthy humans.’ Briefly, the study found that activity in the primary visual cortex at […]
New EJN publication on visual awareness
An international team of researchers including Antti Revonsuo have published an article in the European Journal of Neuroscience entitled “Subjective Visual Awareness Emerges Prior to P3.” Briefly, the research looked at differences in the evoked EEG signal between aware and unaware stimuli, in order to map out corresponding event-related potential (ERP) components.

New article on visual awareness
A research team including (MSc alumnus) Granit Kastrati and Antti Revonsuo have published an article in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience entitled “Recurrent Processing Enhances Visual Awareness but Is Not Necessary for Fast Categorization of Natural Scenes“. Briefly, the EEG-based study sought to clarify the role of recurrent processing in natural scene categorization.
