The mental representation of parity and number magnitude.
Nine experiments of timed odd-even judgments examined how parity and number magnitude are accessed from Arabic and verbal numerals. With Arabic numerals, Ss used the rightmost digit to access a storeExpand

The visual word form area: spatial and temporal characterization of an initial stage of reading in normal subjects and posterior split-brain patients.
A standard model of word reading postulates that visual information is initially processed by occipitotemporal areas contralateral to the stimulated hemifield, from whence it is subsequently transferred to the visual word form system, a left inferior temporal region specifically devoted to the processing of letter strings.

Towards a cognitive neuroscience of consciousness: basic evidence and a workspace framework
This introductory chapter attempts to clarify the philosophical, empirical, and theoretical bases on which a cognitive neuroscience approach to consciousness can be founded. We isolate three majorExpand

Conscious, preconscious, and subliminal processing: a testable taxonomy
Of the many brain events evoked by a visual stimulus, which are specifically associated with conscious perception, and which merely reflect non-conscious processing? Several recent neuroimagingExpand

Language-specific tuning of visual cortex? Functional properties of the Visual Word Form Area.
The first steps in the process of reading a printed word belong to the domain of visual object perception. They culminate in a representation of letter strings as an ordered set of abstract letterExpand
