Visual marking is demonstrated when observers, searching for a target, can ignore a previewed set of distractors (other items), effectively decreasing the number of relevant items in a difficult search display and thus speeding performance. Watson and Humphreys (1997) first described the phenomena. They and other researchers have more recently investigated visual marking for continuously moving items, finding that shared features, and preserved inter-item spatial relationships, are helpful.
