Abstract

Recent advances in human vision research have pointed toward a theory that unifies many aspects of vision relevant to information visualization. According to this theory, loss of information in peripheral vision determines performance on many visual tasks. This theory subsumes old concepts such as visual saliency, selective attention, and change blindness. It predicts the rich details we have access to at a glance. Furthermore, it provides insight into tasks not commonly studied in human vision, such as ability to comprehend connections in a network diagram, or to compare information in one part of a display with that in another.
