In their recent letter to Trends in Cognitive Sciences [1], Overgaard and Fazekas provide constructive criticisms of our proposal to use no-report paradigms to extract the true neural correlates of consciousness (NCC) [2]. Here, we clarify our claims that are slightly misrepresented in their comments. Specifically, we re-emphasize that: (i) no-report paradigms should be combined with report-based paradigms; (ii) no read-out of perception is likely to generalize over all conditions; and (iii) theoretical approaches are a viable alternative to simply relying on the scientists? intuitions. Furthermore, we agree with their suggestion of a refinement of post-NCC processes and offer some existing examples.
