Description/Abstract

Inattentional blindness - the failure of a person to perceive an unexpected event occurring in their visual field can cause individuals in critical environments to be at risk. The objective of this research is to further the understanding of the effects of subject attention on recorded Steady-State Visually Evoked Potential (SSVEP) signals, a brain response observed in the electroencephalogram (EEG) to flashing stimuli. Once the effect of attention on SSVEP is further characterized, it may be used as a real time predictor of international blindness in order to improve awareness of potential risks in critical environments.
