Probing the limits of activity-silent non-conscious working memory

Our findings challenge the concept of genuine non-conscious “working” memory, argue that activity-silent states merely support passive short-term memory, and provide a cautionary note for purely behavioral studies of non-conscious information processing

Even though not focused on language learning per se, I think this is a very interesting article for the field of Second Language Acquisition. It would be interesting to hear more thoughts on how these results align with those of experiments that demonstrate long-term linguistic priming.

Nice find, Kraut.

Mahalo! :)
