Schematic depiction of experimental paradigm.

A low-luminance gray-scale testing stimulus presented to one eye was rendered invisible by a high-contrast colorful masking stimulus presented to the other eye. The testing stimulus was left/right oriented grating in experiment one, face/house in experiment two, and happy/sad cartoon face in experiment three. Participants made a two-alternative forced choice indicating the identity of the testing stimulus, followed by a perceptual awareness report indicating whether the testing stimulus was seen clearly and discriminable (fully visible), or seen vaguely and un-discriminable (partially visible), or not seen at all (invisible).
