The main goal of WP7 is to explore the contributions of conscious and unconscious learning to consciousness. We examine this issue from a dynamical perspective, putting the emphasis on (1) contrasting different methodologies to assess awareness, and on (2) on exploring the non-monotonic dynamics of consciousness, at different time scales (within-trial processing, learning, & development). Because the workplan for this WP is substantial, its presentation is split in three parts. WP7a is focused on manipulations of quality of representation. WP7b is focused on manipulations of metarepresentations. WP7c is dedicated on exploring the provocative idea (the “radical plasticity thesis” that learning mechanisms actually subtend the emergence of consciousness.
