It is a conservative and reasonable suggestion that implicit functioning, as in blindsight, is simply a weakened, degraded form of normal functioning, especially as the parameters of vision in blindsight are themselves weakened— e.g., acuity is reduced, detection thresholds are raised, chromatic discrimination is coarser. But does this mean that maximum… CONTINUE READING
