Abstract: People often fail to detect the changes to objects or scenes. This phenomenon is called “change blindness”. It is the other side of change detection. Researches on change blindness mainly focused on several aspects. The reasons of change blindness was one of researchers’ major concerns, and factors that influenced change blindness was another main subject, which includes properties of stimulus, attention breadth, context knowledge, individual differences between observers and culture backgrounds. Recently, the question of implicit change detection has drew many researchers’ notice, and great attention is paid to change blindness through multi (cross)-channels and change blindness blindness (CBB) as well. However, disagreements arose about change blindness and its representation mechanisms, processing methods and implicit change detection. Besides, studies on change blindness based on CBB and cognitive neuroscience need to be further explored.

Key words: change blindness, change detection, change deafness, change perception
