This term 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.)
