Microgenetic sequence, Objective component development, Subliminal perception
While subjective components of meaning may accompany the objective perception of visible stimuli, the relationship between the development of these subjective and objective components of perception within the time limits of a single perceptual act is less than well understood. In this study, a theoretical analysis of the microgenetic theory of perception leads to the hypothesis that subjective components of perception develop earlier during the microgenetic sequence, while objective components develop later. This hypothesis is tested using an experimental paradigm derived from the investigation of subliminal perception.
