Haunting Cave Paintings in Indonesia Are the Oldest in the World | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it
This stencil of a graceful, outstretched hand was discovered in a cave on an Indonesian island. And now we know that it's more than 39,900 years old.

The Visual Linguist: New paper: The grammar of visual narratives

The Visual Linguist: New paper: The grammar of visual narratives | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

In this paper, Neil Cohn "provides evidence that sequential images are processed by creating "constituents"— groupings of panels—rather than just "transitions" between the meanings of panels. Furthermore, disrupting these groupings in the "narrative grammar" of sequential images evokes the same brain responses as when you violate the grammar of sentences."

How doodles can help you get organized at work - St. Louis Business Journal | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

Dulle was in college [when he] realized that doodling helped him remember facts and figures for tests better than note-taking did. For him, visual thinking is about translating spoken ideas into a visual space, which, much like sign language, means combining words and their meanings through graphics.
