Abstract:

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 performance in blindsight is itself uniformly degraded? The answer is no, because there are many examples of very good performance in blindsi...
