We sometimes fail to notice unexpected objects or events when our attention is directed elsewhere, a phenomenon called inattentional blindness. We explored whether unexpected objects that shared the color of consequential objects would be noticed more often. In three pre-registered experiments, participants played a custom video game in which they avoided both low- and high-cost missiles (Experiment 1 and 2) or tried to hit rewarding missiles while avoiding costly ones (Experiment 3).

Dollars do not determine detection: Monetary value associated with unexpected objects does not affect the likelihood of inattentional blindness
TLDR
It is speculated that artificial monetary value, which is known to affect attentional capture, is not strong enough to determine whether or not an object is consciously perceived. Expand
The spatial allocation of attention in an interactive environment
TLDR
Both the content of the environment and how a subject can interact with it influence the spatial allocation of attention, and subjects were most likely to notice unexpected objects in the areas with the greatest risk of contact with a hazard. Expand
Inattentional blindness for a gun during a simulated police vehicle stop
TLDR
People can experience inattentional blindness for a potentially dangerous object in a naturalistic real-world context, even when noticing that object would change how they perform their primary task and even when their training focuses on awareness of potential threats. Expand
The unexpected killer: effects of stimulus threat and negative affectivity on inattentional blindness
TLDR
Observers are more likely to detect threat-related unexpected objects, consistent with the threat superiority effect observed in other paradigms, according to the results of this study. Expand
Crime Blindness: How Selective Attention and Inattentional Blindness Can Disrupt Eyewitness Awareness and Memory
Most people are not constantly watching for crimes and accidents. They are instead focused on other tasks. When people are focused on other tasks, they may fail to see crimes that should be obvious,Expand
A Potential Case of Inattentional Blindness in a Police-Pursuit Collision
The perceptual phenomenon of “inattentional blindness” has been widely acknowledged in the scientific literature for 30 years. In addition to the laboratory-based examples, real-life examples appearExpand
The Dynamic and Fragile Nature of Eyewitness Memory Formation: Considering Stress and Attention
TLDR
It is argued that acute stress, often experienced by eyewitnesses and victims of crimes, directly influences attentional processes, which likely has downstream consequences for memory. Expand
Clarifying the effect of facial emotional expression on inattentional blindness
TLDR
In the proposed studies, the effect of the semantic value of faces on inattentional blindness is replicated and clarified in a controlled and systematic manner. Expand
Hyperfocus: the forgotten frontier of attention
TLDR
How hyperfocus has been defined and measured, the challenges associated with hyperfocus research, and how hyperfocus affects both neurotypical and clinical populations are reviewed are reviewed. Expand

What you see is what you set: sustained inattentional blindness and the capture of awareness.
TLDR
The authors conclude that many--but not all--aspects of attention capture apply to inattentional blindness but that these 2 classes of phenomena remain importantly distinct. Expand
Animate Objects are Detected More Frequently than Inanimate Objects in Inattentional Blindness Tasks Independently of Threat
TLDR
It is suggested that animate objects capture attention in the absence of task-relevant goals and that snakes do not show an advantage over other animate objects in inattentional blindness tasks. Expand
Gorillas in Our Midst: Sustained Inattentional Blindness for Dynamic Events
TLDR
A new study builds on classic studies of divided visual attention to examine inattentional blindness for complex objects and events in dynamic scenes and suggests that the likelihood of noticing an unexpected object depends on the similarity of that object to other objects in the display and on how difficult the priming monitoring task is. Expand
Age Effects on Inattentional Blindness: Implications for Driving
TLDR
Three potential moderators of the age and inattentional blindness relationship are explored: the spatial proximity of the unexpected object to their focus of attention; the match between the features of thenexpected object and those the authors have prioritized—their attention set; and the salience of theexpected object. Expand
The effects of an unexpected spider stimulus on skin conductance responses and eye movements: an inattentional blindness study
TLDR
The findings imply that enhanced reactions to unexpected spider images are independent of fear level and include early engagement processes, and awareness of a spider picture does not seem to be a prerequisite for elevated arousal. Expand
You do not talk about Fight Club if you do not notice Fight Club: Inattentional blindness for a simulated real-world assault
TLDR
Results provide evidence that inattentional blindness can occur during real-world situations, including the Boston case, by having subjects run after a confederate along a route near which three other confederates staged a fight. Expand
Feature-based attentional set as a cause of traffic accidents
Voluntary and relatively involuntary subsystems of attention often compete. On one hand, people can intentionally “tune” attention for features that then receive visual priority; on the other hand,Expand

Abstract The human visual system may retain ancestral mechanisms uniquely dedicated to the rapid detection of immediate and specific threats (e.g. spiders and snakes) that persistently recurredExpand
Angry faces hold the eyes

Do threatening stimuli draw or hold visual attention in subclinical anxiety?
TLDR
It is concluded that threat-related stimuli affect attentional dwell time and the disengage component of attention, leaving the question of whether threat stimuli affect the shift component of Attention open to debate. Expand
