I'm new to /sci/ so sorry if this is a shit question.
I study philosophy and psychology in uni and am primarily interested in questions pertaining to "the unconscious" or unconscious processes. Philosophers and psychoanalysts definitely seem to be interested in explaining what the unconscious "is" and giving a topographical account of the mind as such, but I don't always get that same impression in my more neuroscience based classes. My questions are basically: in what ways do cognitive scientists and neuroscientsists try to explain unconsciousness? Are they also interested in giving a topographical account of the mind? What type of work is being done in these fields to explore unconsciousness?
