  • Summary

Professor Steve Joordens discusses attention and the unconscious and conscious processes of attention. Unconscious processes are the automatic actions that the brain does by itself, and conscious processes are goal-oriented controlled actions.These two processes allow the brain to extract information from the external world and use this information for memory and decision making.
