Are There Multiple Visual Short-Term Memory Stores?
TLDR
It is found that immediately after a stimulus has disappeared from view, subjects can still access information from iconic memory because they can see an after-image of the display and that human observers store more sustained representations than is evident from standard change detection tasks and that these representations can be accessed at will.

Is there consciousness in machines? Or in animals? What happens to consciousness when we are asleep, or in vegetative state? These are just a few examples of the many questions about consciousness
Gestalten of Today: Early Processing of Visual Contours and Surfaces
TLDR
This work has shown that oscillatory responses in cat visual cortex exhibit inter-columnar synchronization which reeects global stimulus properties, Nature 338 (1989) 334{337) and this work aims to provide the right conditions for the formation of`shape' and observe the capability to generate (or ruin) coherent patterns in any domain.
Masking Disrupts Reentrant Processing in Human Visual Cortex
TLDR
Electroencephalogram measurements are used to determine what happens in the human visual cortex during detection of a texture-defined square under nonmasked and masked conditions, and conclude that masking derives its effectiveness, at least partly, from disrupting reentrant processing, thereby interfering with the neural mechanisms of figure-ground segmentation and visual awareness itself.
