Kobe Desender and Eva Van den Bussche have commented on our recent paper (see post below: ‘Scientific publication in Consciousness & Cognition’). They agree with us on certain points, but on the other hand question the validity of our design. I encourage you to read their interesting comments here, and subsequently our response. If you would like to read more about the role of awareness in priming and specifically conflict adaptation, I recommend their review ‘Is consciousness necessary for conflict adaptation? A state of the art’ published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.
