I am looking for an example of cognitive interuption in which a person is shown an image, then a blank screen and an image that has somethign missing. Jared showed one at the Web App Masters Tour with soldiers getting onto a plane. Can ayone point me to an example?

Thanks!

Hi Mabel,

Sounds like you are looking for an example of "Change Blindness."  Searching on that or Ron Rensink, one of the early Cognitive Psych. investigators of this phenomenon, will yield several examples.
