Visual Metacognition in Adults and Children
Edited by Daniel T. Levin

Experimental research has shown that people miss apparently obvious visual discontinuities—a phenomenon known as "change blindness." For example, in one experiment, subjects watching a brief film of a conversation between two actors did not notice that in some shots one actor appeared wearing a large, colorful scarf and in other shots she wore no scarf; in another experiment, subjects did not even notice when one actor was replaced by another between shots.
