Streeb, Dirk: S. M. Kosslyn [1989]: Understanding Charts and Graphs doi:10.1002/acp.2350030302 - 09.07.20 06:59 (+-) Ambivalent One or more paragraphs p. 196 Partly because only a limited amount of information can be held in short-term memory at once, some marks will be given priority over others. The information conveyed by these marks should be central to the display’s message.

Kosslyn [1989]: Understanding Charts and Graphs doi:10.1002/acp.2350030302 - 09.07.20 06:59 (*) Mentioned without valuation One or more sentences p. 191 Third, some aspects of a stimulus are given priority over others; we pay attention first to abrupt changes of any sort (e.g. heavier marks, brighter colours).
Streeb, Dirk: D. Kirsh [2010]: Thinking with External Representations doi:10.1007/s00146-010-0272-8 - 12.03.18 12:35 (*) Mentioned without valuation One or more sentences p. 443 It is natural for visual attention to focus on estimating angles.

Patterson [2012]: Cognitive Engineering, Cognitive Augmentation, and Information Display doi:10.1889/JSID20.4.208 - 28.02.18 12:20 (+) Positive One or more paragraphs p. 211 Displays that present images in order to direct attention to important visual stimuli will help minimize the potential for inattentional blindness.

Tufte [2001[1983]]: The Visual Display of Quantitative Information isbn:978-0-9613921-4-7 - 05.02.18 12:03 (+-) Ambivalent One or more sentences p. 20 Note how quickly and naturally our attention has been directed toward exploring the substantive content of the data rather than toward questions of methodology and technique. Nonetheless the maps do have their flaws.
