Abstract

This paper argues for an explanation of the mechanistic (computational) basis of consciousness that is based on the distinction between localist (symbolic) representation and distributed representation. the ideas of which have been put forth in the connectionist literature. A model is developed to substantiate and test this approach. The paper also explores the issue of the functional roles of consciousness, in relation to the proposed mechanistic explanation of consciousness. The model, embodying the representational difference, is able to account for the functional role of consciousness, inthe form of the synergy between the conscious and the unconscious. The fitbetween the model and various cognitive phe nomena and data (documented inthe psychological literatures) is discussed to accentuate the plausibilityof the model and its explanation of consciousness. Comparisons with existing models of consciousness are made in the end. (C) 1999 Academic Press.
