Introspection of complex cognitive processes
The present thesis presents a first systematic account of the functional architecture of introspective report, indicating that individuals with high reactivity to stress have a poorer introspective access of their mental states.
Neurophenomenology revisited: second-person methods for the study of human consciousness
It is argued that second-person methods represent a powerful approach for closing the gap between the experiential and the neurobiological levels of description in the study of human consciousness.
Manipulation Detection and Preference Alterations in a Choice Blindness Paradigm
Preference alterations were altered in the direction that subjects were led to believe they selected, and clear short-term modulation of preferences in both manipulated and non-manipulated explanation trials compared to choice-only trials (with opposite directions of effect).
Methodological Approach for the Analysis of Artistic Creativity through First-Person Analysis
Can the study of a single subject by means of a first-person analysis be considered from a scientific methodological approach? The response from neurophenomenology is yes. The recent science of
Theophanis the Monk and Monoimus the Arab in a Phenomenological-Cognitive Perspective
Abstract Two brief Late Antique religious texts, respectively by the monk Theophanis and by Monoimus the Arab, present an interesting problem of whether they embody the authors’ experience, or
Guidelines for quantitative and qualitative studies of sensory substitution experience
Information that is normally accessed through a sensory modality (substituted modality, e.g., vision) is provided by sensory substitution devices (SSDs) through an alternative modality such as
Consciousness of God as God is: The phenomenology of Christian centering prayer
In this study I aim to give an alternative approach to the way we theorise in the philosophy and comparative study of mysticism. Specifically, I aim to shift debate on the phenomenal nature of
First-person access to decision-making using micro-phenomenological self-inquiry.
The self-inquiry format is not sufficient for conducing micro-phenomenological studies and that training is required, and the reliability of reports in general is tested.

It is argued that contemporary proxemics research provides psychology and neuroscience with a means to study social cognition and behavior as they naturally emerge and unfold in vivo.

La relevancia de los informes subjetivos en la neurociencia cognitiva hace necesario conocer que tipo de material experiencial se puede comunicar y observar subjetivamente. Una posibilidad de ese


Validating and Calibrating First- and Second-person Methods in the Science of Consciousness
Only with increasingly refined verbal reports about what it is like to be conscious can the authors hope to better understand the detailed data that neuroscience is providing about the complex brain mechanisms underlying lived experience and delimit the phenomenological facts that a theory of consciousness must take into account.
Telling more than we can know: Verbal reports on mental processes.
Evidence is reviewed which suggests that there may be little or no direct introspective access to higher order cognitive processes. Subjects are sometimes (a) unaware of the existence of a stimulus

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

Why Trust the Subject
It is a great pleasure to introduce this collection of papers on the use of introspective evidence in cognitive science. Our task as guest editors has been tremendously stimulating. We have received
Re-Viewing from Within: A Commentary on First- and Second-Person Methods in the Science of Consciousness
There is a growing recognition in consciousness science of the need for rigorous methods for obtaining accurate and detailed phenomenological reports of lived experience, i.e., descriptions of
Is It Better to Think Unconsciously or to Trust Your First Impression?
According to unconscious thought theory, complex decisions are best made after a period of distraction assumed to elicit “unconscious thought.” Here, the authors suggest instead that the superiority
