Trends in Cognitive Sciences, 1 7 Even if little information is available to make conscious judgments about display changes, could it be that some information is retained unconsciously? Only those aspects of the environment that are currently being "visually manipulated", are actually available for conscious processing at a given moment.
Following the discovery that CB was not specifically related to eye movements, but to the brief disruption that is inserted between the two versions of the picture, considerable interest in the phenomenon developed, and a large number of further experiments have been performed.
Adults are more accurate when noticing the changes that occur in the picture.
This behavior is called "experiential nothingness". Elements of the picture that occupied as much as a fifth of the picture area would not be seen.
It is found that the observer often fails to report the occurrence of a second target letter if the second target follows the first by less than about ms: The experimenters tested pairs of faces that were either high in similarity or low in similarity, but the detection rate was no different between those conditions.
While all significantly improve performance, the second and third countermeasures are most effective. Or does it act essentially like the mudsplashes in the mudsplash paradigm to create local transients that act as decoys?
Results showed that performance was impaired when the empty interval was inserted, and even more so when tactile mask was introduced. The results show that the same levels of attention is demanded for chimpanzees as humans Change blindness a literature review on these tasks.
Under normal viewing conditions therefore, when a change occurs, it produces a visual transient which attracts attention to the change location.
The idea is that in fact the experience of seeing does not derive from the activation, inside the brain, of an "icon" of the outside world. The camera cut produces a global disruption similar to the blank in the flicker experiments.
Further work additionally showed that the code in which the information is stored in visual visual short term memory is not a visual code, but a code in which only the category or identity of the elements is available. The masking stimulus almost acts like a saccadic movement of the eye which makes it significantly more difficult for individuals to detect the change.
The alcohol slows down the movement and processing of the brain, therefore causing more fixation points. At a given moment, a large, unexpected visual event takes place.
Gorillas in our midst: In these trials, detection rates drastically improved. This explains the apparent paradox between the feeling of richness we have of our visual environments, and our striking inability, in change blindness experiments, of knowing what has changed. Foreground-background segregation[ edit ] The foreground-background segregation method for studying change blindness uses photographs of scenery with a distinct foreground and background.
Information integration in perception and communication pp. Change blindness can occur even without a delay between the original image and the altered image, but only if the change in the image forces the viewer to redefine the objects in the image.
To see or not to see: The change will only be immediately noticed if an observer happens to have been attending to the changing element at the moment it changes.
Change blindness, in addition to links with research on visual short term memory, also has relations with several more recent lines of research showing that attentional capacity in short term visual processing is severely limited, both in spatial extent, and in the way it extends over time.
Change blindness occurs when a change takes place during an eye movement or blink that is not noticed. This could be attributed to more passive viewings of larger images, and the use of alcohol slows down more controlled search processes.
In the first experiment of this kind, inBlackmore et al. Using the same motion detection paradigm for monkeys as humans, researchers found the results were the same in showing change blindness in motion. With appropriate techniques  is it possible to enhance the perception of the portion of a 3D scene that is change while hiding non significant, but otherwise still visible, changes.
To what extent does the flicker in the flicker paradigm act to mask or "wipe out" the internal representation? Previously, it has been stated that humans hold a very good internal representation of visual stimuli.
These studies have shown that even while participants are focusing their attention and searching for a change, the change may remain unnoticed.
Individuals often take significantly longer to notice certain changes if there are a few small, high contrast shapes that are temporarily splattered over a picture.Another field of research that has connections to change blindness is the extensive literature on memory and cognitive descriptions (review cf Pani ).
Part of the explanation for change blindness may reside in memory limitations rather than in perceptual limitations.
One explanation for the phenomenon of change blindness is that of improper attention given to the stimulus (Wolfe, Cave & Franzel,as cited by Rensink, O' Regan &. We review theory and research motivating work on change blindness and discuss recent evidence that people are blind to changes occurring in photographs, in motion pictures and even in real-world interactions.
