Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. IV, 1956: Dreams, Images, and Perception. Charles Fisher. Pp. 5-48.

Preconscious perception is demonstrated experimentally by Fisher by showing correspondences between conscious image formation and pictures previously exposed for durations below the threshold for conscious perception. Images were drawn immediately or up to seventy-two hours after exposure of the subject to the pictures. Many of the images showing correspondences also showed distortions and transformations such as are produced by dream work and the primary process. Identical images sometimes appeared in later dreams.

These findings indicate that transformations and distortions take place rapidly and soon after the percept (thus modifying Freud's view that they occur during sleep); they confirm the fluid transition of primary and secondary processes, and the invasion of conscious imagery by unconscious wishes. Perception is described as a complex process of which only the final phases become conscious.
