Reaction: Attention and Visual Memory in Visualization and Computer Graphics

I liked reading this paper. One of the main reasons for this is that it's much easier to recognize, understand, and learn from something you could correlate with. The ideas presented in this paper where more close to real life situations. The main focus of this paper was how we perceive visualization. It was good to learn about how the human eye processes visual images or other information. It was rightly said that the user only concentrates on the piece of information he wants to notice and thereby ignoring other relevant information which might be present around. Overall, it was a good paper to read but I would like to read more stuff about the utilization of visual attributes in the infoviz world.
