The current study investigated whether differences exist in eyewitness identification and change blindness when manipulating attention. 126 undergraduate students were randomly assigned to either a full or divided attention group. Level of attention was found to be a significant predictor for accurate identification, χ2 (3, N = 126) = 1947, p < .001. Additionally, there was a significant between-group difference on correct recall, t (115.46) = 4.24, p < .001, and self-reported confidence in responses given, t (124) = 3.62, p < .001. Level of attention was a non-significant predictor of participantsí detection of change (two-tailed Fisher exact p = .058). Results indicate that level of attention impacts on accurate eyewitness identification.
