If I am not mistaken, the term "subconscious" is related to psychoanalysis and is usually avoided in academic psychology. Instead the term "unconscious" is used to describe phenomena happening without conscious awareness.
That was my mistake, and my fault for not being actually involved in academic psychology. I listened to the source I was quoting again, and indeed I had misquoted. Eric Kandell was indeed talking about the unconscious and did not use the term subconscious.
I have updated and retagged my question; thank you for bringing this up!
That sounds reasonable to me. I think "subconscious" has only been used on one question. So it's pretty simple to change that.
