While widely studied, the capacity of the human mind remains largely unexplored. As such, researchers are continually seeking ways to understand the brain, its function, and its impact on human behavior.

Exploring Implicit Cognition: Learning, Memory, and Social Cognitive Processes explores research surrounding the ways in which an individual’s unconscious is able to influence and impact that person’s behavior without their awareness. Focusing on topics pertaining to social cognition and the unconscious process, this title is ideal for use by students, researchers, psychologists, and academicians interested in the latest insights into implicit cognition.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Brain Mechanisms
  • Human Cognitive System
  • Implicit Learning
  • Implicit Measures
  • Implicit Memory
  • Implicit-Explicit Relations

Reviews and Testimonials

Contributors from psychology and education explore cognitive processes that are independent of consciousness, such as the perception of subliminal stimuli, repetitive priming effects, unconscious learning, and rule generalization and abstraction. The topics include priming, current problems and issues for research into individual differences in implicit learning, implicit processes and emotions in stereotype threats about women's leadership, a behavioral approach to implicit attitudes, how social factors influence implicit knowledge construction on the Internet, and hidden curriculum determinants in (pre)school institutions as implicit cognition in action.
