Gorillas in Our Midst: Sustained Inattentional Blindness for Dynamic Events
With each eye fixation, we experience a richly detailed visual world. Yet recent work on visual integration and change direction reveals that we are surprisingly unaware of the details of ourExpand

  • 1 August 1990
Blindfolded rats were trained to stretch across a gap to palpate rough or smooth surfaces with their mystacial vibrissae. Animals learned to discriminate reliably a smooth surface from a roughExpand

Thalamocortical response transformation in the rat vibrissa/barrel system.
1. Extracellular single-unit recordings and controlled whisker stimuli were used to compare response properties between cells in the "barreloids" of the thalamic ventrobasal complex and those in theExpand

Current Approaches to Change Blindness
Across saccades, blinks, blank screens, movie cuts, and other interruptions, observers fail to detect substantial changes to the visual details of objects and scenes. This inability to spot changesExpand

In Sight, Out of Mind: When Object Representations Fail
Models of human visual memory often presuppose an extraordinary ability to recognize and identify objects, based on evidence for nearly flawless recognition of hundreds or even thousands of picturesExpand

Moving and looming stimuli capture attention
Attention capture is often operationally defined as speeded search performance when an otherwise nonpredictive stimulus happens to be the target of a visual search. That is, if a stimulus capturesExpand

How not to be Seen: The Contribution of Similarity and Selective Ignoring to Sustained Inattentional Blindness
When people attend to objects or events in a visual display, they often fail to notice an additional, unexpected, but fully visible object or event in the same display. This phenomenon is now knownExpand
