oneinvestigator of hypnotic and unconscious psychological processes, has shown that a particular variant of implicit learning, involving certain non- novel information (such as word pairings), can occur under medical anesthesia. Thedegree to which this can be considered a form of learning in the more generalnon-technical sense is difficult to say, and the precise neurobiological mechanism of anesthesia is likewise somewhat elusive. But it has also been observed that implicitly learned material has certain unique characteristics, as compared to explicitly learned material, such as that implicit material ismore often preserved intact in cases of amnesia.
