Special Issue in Psych: Cognition and memory: from body to mind and back
The conditions in which visual communication may facilitate or hinder action, or behavioural responses to facts and events depends on the effectiveness with which critical aspects of information are encoded, perceived, and processed. Visually or diagrammatically communicated information content in images may reveal complex data and interactions more effectively than verbal discourse or text messages, depending on how the information is highlighted in an image. Specific perceptual cues such as contrast, colour, or shape may help a human operator to focus attention on relevant information and thereby facilitate the execution of a specific task significantly. "Visual" signals in image representations may also be perceived by intelligent machines, and can be exploited to design effective command structures for system tasks at a minimal computational cost in comparison with other, more complex approaches. This Special Issue on 'perception and communication' welcomes research articles, theoretical/conceptual papers and opinion pieces on visually (image) mediated communication and the many ways in which data and contents represented visually or diagrammatically may be perceived and processed by humans or machines.
