This is an important limitation, because it would be impossible to predict someone’s cognitive processes and behaviour in most situations without detailed knowledge of the factors determining attentional focus. Sanocki et al. (1998, p. 346) concluded as follows: Edge information is far from being sufficient for object recognition.

Chess players study previous games and can recall their own games in detail. The main debate in the cognitive school has been about the sequence of events. Heit (1992) examined how people make predictions from learned instances or from instances that were similar to learned instances (see also Anderson, 1991; Osherson et al., 1990). Kellogg (1994) discussed studies involving directed retrospection. This is the case in some patients with achromatopsia.
