It is unclear whether this ‘change blindness’ results from failure to process the relevant item before the change, or failure to compare/recall the item after the change. We recorded pre-change multi-unit activity in area V1 of monkeys performing a change detection task. The animals were rewarded for making a saccade to the changing figure. Figure-ground related activity was observed, even when no correct saccade was made. However, for the changing figure, pre-change activity was stronger in correct trials than in incorrect trials. We conclude that small differences in pre-change figure-ground segregation have predictive value in whether the change will be successfully detected. Erratum The authors would like to make the following amendment to their article referenced below . The word post-change in the title should read: pre-change.
