Inattentional Blindness

Short Description: Inattentional blindness (IB) is the failure to notice salient events while one is paying attention to something else. IB has been widely replicated but has never been measured in a nationally representative sample. We measure IB’s prevalence and its association with ADHD and autism, and with socio-demographic background.

Methodological Details: A computer-generated video of white and black squares and circles moving on a gray background was shown, in which participants count the number of times one type of shape touches the side of the display area, and are asked whether they saw a new shape move across the screen.
