The Preconscious is a structure of the mind, postulated by Sigmund Freud, containing all memories that can be easily accessed by the conscious mind. These memories are not conscious, because a person need not actually be aware of them at any given moment, but they are also distinct from the rest of the Freudian unconscious, which Freud describes as containing repressed desires and memories and which cannot be easily brought into the conscious mind. For this reason, the preconscious is often thought of as lying between the conscious and unconscious mind.
