|Bernard Baars and Stan Franklin. “How conscious experience and working memory interact”. Trends in Cognitive Sciences Vol7 No.4 April2003.|
|Active components of classical working memory are
conscious, but traditional theory does not account for
this fact. Global Workspace theory suggests that consciousness
is needed to recruit unconscious specialized
networks that carry out detailed working memory functions.
The IDA model provides a fine-grained analysis
of this process, specifically of two classical workingmemory
tasks, verbal rehearsal and the utilization of a
visual image. In the process, new light is shed on the
interactions between conscious and unconscious
aspects of working memory.
