Conflicts everywhere! Perceptions, actions, and cognition all entail memory and reflect conflict

  • Jerome S. Jordan (a1) and David W. Vinson (a2)

Abstract

Morsella et al. assert that the function of consciousness is to determine which of many competing action options is expressed through the skeletomuscular system at any given moment. The present commentary addresses this issue from the first-person perspective and agrees with Morsella and colleagues, yet further proposes that the option-selection function of consciousness plays out in cognition as well.
