This article reports a theoretical and experimental attempt to relate and contrast 2 traditionally separate research programs: inattentional blindness and attention capture. Inattentional blindness refers to failures to notice unexpected objects and events when attention is otherwise engaged. Attention capture research has traditionally used implicit indices (e.g., response times) to investigate automatic shifts of attention. Because attention capture usually measures performance whereas… Expand
Attention capture, processing speed, and inattentional blindness.
TLDR
It is suggested that attention capture is unrelated to the noticing of an unexpected stimulus, but efficient encoding and recognition of a stimulus is an important factor. Expand
Does semantic preactivation reduce inattentional blindness?
TLDR
The failure to consciously perceive unexpected objects was not moderated by semantic preactivation of the objects’ most prominent feature: its color, reflecting the rather general principle that preactivations that are not motivationally relevant for one’s current selection goals do not suffice to make an unexpected object overcome the threshold of awareness.

The gap between inattentional blindness and attentional misdirection
  • D. Memmert
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Consciousness and Cognition
  • 2010
TLDR
There are at least four differences between the two paradigms which concern the conceptual aspect of the unexpected object and the methodological aspects of the task design, which highlights the need for a broader theoretical framework incorporating inattentional blindness and overt and covert attention mechanisms. Expand
Inattentional blindness reflects limitations on perception, not memory: Evidence from repeated failures of awareness
TLDR
Repeated IB demonstrates that IB is aptly named: it reflects a genuine deficit in moment-by-moment conscious perception, rather than a form of inattentional amnesia. Expand
Inattentional blindness reflects limitations on perception, not memory: Evidence from repeated failures of awareness.
TLDR
These experiments demonstrate that IB is aptly named: it reflects a genuine deficit in moment-by-moment conscious perception, rather than a form of inattentional amnesia. Expand
What’s “inattentional” about inattentional blindness?
  • S. Most
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Consciousness and Cognition
  • 2010
TLDR
This commentary argues that, rather than reflecting a complete dissociation between IB and attentional misdirection, this difference highlights potential grounds for delineating mechanistically distinct forms of IB: spatial inattentional blindness, which stems from the covert misallocation of spatial attention.

Attention Capture: The Interplay of Expectations, Attention, and Awareness
ABSTRACT The term attention capture, in common parlance, has two distinct connotations: (1) it is automatic or stimulus-driven and cannot be overridden by top-down control, and (2) it necessarilyExpand
The Influence of Attention Set, Working Memory Capacity, and Expectations on Inattentional Blindness
TLDR
The results are largely consistent with the idea that individual differences in working memory capacity do not predict noticing of unexpected objects in an inattentional blindness task. Expand
The role of unattended distractors in sustained inattentional blindness
TLDR
It is concluded that attending to target items on the basis of attentional set, but not active ignoring of nontargets items, is sufficient for the occurrence of sustained inattentional blindness. Expand
An ERP study of inattentional blindness condition
Sometimes we do not notice a salient object while being occupied with some attention-demand- ing task, a phenomenon known as inattentional blindness (IB). Nowadays the question of the ori- gin of IBExpand

Inattentional Blindness: Perception or Memory and What Does It Matter?
An extensive research program surrounding a phenomenon called inattentional blindness is reported by Mack and Rock (1998) in their book of the same name. The general conclusion that is drawn from theExpand

TLDR
Traditional studies of implicit attentional capture and recent studies of inattentional blindness provide a more complete understanding of the varieties of attentional Capture, both in the laboratory and in the real world. Expand
Inattentional Blindness as a Function of Proximity to the Focus of Attention
TLDR
This study demonstrates that the effect of distance is similar under conditions of inattention, and suggests that low-level stimulus characteristics (eg location) may play an important role in the detection of unexpected stimuli. Expand
How not to be Seen: The Contribution of Similarity and Selective Ignoring to Sustained Inattentional Blindness
TLDR
A new approach to the study of sustained inattentional blindness for dynamic events is presented in order to explore the roles of similarity, distinctiveness, and attentional set in the detection of unexpected objects. 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.

Many theories of visual perception assume that before attention is allocated within a scene, visual information is parsed according to the Gestalt principles of organization. This assumption has beenExpand

TLDR
It is argued that the results reported by Folk et al., though important, do not definitively corroborate either Folk, Remington, and Johnston (1992), and the available evidence concerning stimulus-driven attentional capture is summarized. Expand
Moving and looming stimuli capture attention
TLDR
Although the sorts of dynamic events that capture attention do not fit neatly into a single category, it is speculated that stimuli that signal potentially behaviorally urgent events are more likely to receive attentional priority. Expand
