Two aspects of consciousness are first considered: consciousness as awareness (phenomenological meaning) and consciousness as strategic control (functional meaning). As to awareness, three types can be distinguished: first, awareness as the phenomenal experiences of objects and events; second, awareness as meta-awareness, i.e., the awareness of mental life itself; third, awareness as self-awareness, i.e., the awareness of being oneself. While phenomenal experience and self-awareness are usually… Expand
Phenomenal consciousness, access consciousness and self across waking and dreaming: bridging phenomenology and neuroscience
The distinction between phenomenal and access consciousness is central to debates about consciousness and its neural correlates. However, this distinction has often been limited to the domain ofExpand
Phenomenal consciousness in dreams and in mind wandering
Abstract Dreaming can be explained as the product of an interaction among memory processes, elaborative processes, and phenomenal awareness. A feedback circuit is activated by this interactionExpand
Re-representing consciousness: dissociations between experience and meta-consciousness

TLDR
There is evidence for two types of dissociations between consciousness and meta-consciousness, the latter being defined as the intermittent explicit re-representation of the contents of consciousness. Expand
Conscious Modulation in Normal Sleep
The phenomenological relationship between consciousness and sleep are reviewed. Consciousness has a self- reflexive component, and while sleeping that is not working as in awakenings. The necessityExpand

Within the philosophy of mind, consciousness is currently understood as the expression of one or other cognitive modality, either intentionality (representation per se), transparency (immediacy ofExpand

Consciousness across Sleep and Wake: Discontinuity and Continuity of Memory Experiences As a Reflection of Consolidation Processes
TLDR
It is argued that disruptions of consciousness are as common a feature of waking cognition as of dreaming cognition, and that processes of sleep-dependent memory consolidation of autobiographical experiences can in part account for some of the discontinuities of sleeping cognition in a functional way. Expand
Dreams and the temporality of consciousness.
TLDR
It is argued that dreaming is a unique state of consciousness that incorporates 3 temporal dimensions: experience of the present, processing of the past, and preparation for the future. Expand
Measuring consciousness in dreams: The lucidity and consciousness in dreams scale
TLDR
While all factors are involved in dream consciousness, realism and negative emotion do not differentiate between lucid and non-lucid dreams, suggesting that lucid insight is separable from both bizarreness in dreams and a change in the subjectively experienced realism of the dream. Expand

TLDR
Experimental data suggest that consciousness, interpreted as awareness, can be present along the whole sleep/dream process, even if many modifications of meta-awareness and of self-awareness are possible. Expand

TLDR
This isolation of dream content, from other thought systems is considered as but one manifestation of a more generalized relative isolation ofdream content, which includes isolation from presleep stimuli, contemporaneous stimuli, organismic state, and autonomic and motor activity. Expand

TLDR
Evidence that dreaming is not single-minded but variable along a self-reflective process continuum is provided, and functional and organizational levels that are consistent with the conception of dreaming as higher order cognitive activity are suggested. Expand

TLDR
