This term cognitive unconscious refers to one way in which the brain processes information. The person unknowingly does an action without the usual subjective feeling that accompanies willed action. There is a split between intention and conscious awareness, on the one hand, and the carrying out of a complex series of manoeuvres, on the other. Michael Faraday discovered this during investigations of table-turning session, Ouija boards, and automatic writing. (Restak, Richard, MD. The Naked Brain. p 26-27. NY: Three Rivers Press, 2006.)
