    Language Processing outside the Realm of Consciousness

    The concept “Out of sight, out of mind” has been repeatedly challenged by findings that show visual information biases behavior even without reaching consciousness. However, the depth and complexity of unconscious processing remains elusive. To tackle this issue, we examined whether high-level linguistic information, including syntax and semantics, can be processed without consciousness

    On the Border of Implicit and Explicit Processing

    Get PDF
    Implicit processing plays an important role in maintaining visual functions. After all, at a given moment, our phenomenal experience is inherently limited by various factors, including attention, working memory, etc. In the current proposal, we will tackle major questions in the field and challenge intuitions on implicit/unconscious processing. These questions include the fundamental relation between attention and consciousness, using the level of visual processing as a delineation of explicit and implicit processing, and how implicit decision making perturbs the explicit sense of agency

    Bose-Einstein correlations of charged hadrons in proton-proton collisions at s\sqrt s = 13 TeV

    Get PDF
    Bose-Einstein correlations of charged hadrons are measured over a broad multiplicity range, from a few particles up to about 250 reconstructed charged hadrons in proton-proton collisions at s \sqrt{s} = 13 TeV. The results are based on data collected using the CMS detector at the LHC during runs with a special low-pileup configuration. Three analysis techniques with different degrees of dependence on simulations are used to remove the non-Bose-Einstein background from the correlation functions. All three methods give consistent results. The measured lengths of homogeneity are studied as functions of particle multiplicity as well as average pair transverse momentum and mass. The results are compared with data from both CMS and ATLAS at s \sqrt{s} = 7 TeV, as well as with theoretical predictions.[graphic not available: see fulltext]Bose-Einstein correlations of charged hadrons are measured over a broad multiplicity range, from a few particles up to about 250 reconstructed charged hadrons in proton-proton collisions at s=\sqrt{s} = 13 TeV.
