The difference between conscious and unconscious processes is a
hard issue. Usually in the literature it is argued that without a
mask, participants are conscious of the stimulus, but with a mask
they are not. However, how we know that participants are not still
conscious of the stimulus after it is masked? In fact, all we know
with real reliability is that they can no longer report on what the
stimulus was. Here we argue that without a mask, subjects can
report what the stimulus was. With a mask, they cannot. This
captures the crucial difference and it does so in a way that is
unproblematic in itself and neutral with respect to the bigger
underlying issues. The book includes a series of experiments and
simulations on this subject. The model is new and uses
neuromodulation and dynamic computation. It matches the findings in
the book and previous experimental studies, with new and/or better
results compared to previous models in this area (which are fairly
