Reaction: Attention and Visual Memory in Visualization and Computer Graphics

The word 'pre-attentative ' processing immediately caught my eye when I started reading the paper. The famous example of red circle in the blue ones has been discussed many a times. This paper was indeed interesting to read and digest. The concept and examples of pre attentative processing were worth reading and helped me understand how to better represent some visualization. There are many things which we ignore like the change blindness where in figures c and d it took me a minute to spot the difference between the color of trousers of the gentleman. This paper helped me definitely.
