Change Blindness

by on Mar.12, 2012, under Psychology, Society

Youtube userĀ trutapes has posted a fascinating video of an experiment testing a phenomenon called Change Blindess.

Change blindness is the phenomenon that occurs when a person viewing a visual scene apparently fails to detect large changes in the scene. For change blindness to occur, the change in the scene typically has to coincide with some visual disruption such as a saccade (eye movement) or a brief obscuration of the observed scene or image. When looking at still images, a viewer can experience change blindness if part of the image changes.”
