Stasko [2008]: Distributed Cognition as a Theoretical Framework for Information Visualization doi:10.1109/TVCG.2008.121 - 02.03.18 08:41 (+) Positive Less than a sentence sec. 5.3 In summarizing their interpretation of the experimental results, they argue that external representations serve as more than inputs to the mind or memory aids.
