George Sperling published this very important scientific paper in 1960:

Sperling, G. (1960). The information available in brief visual presentations. Psychological Monographs: General and Applied, 74(11, Whole No. 498). 1-29.

This document is a condensation of his doctoral thesis and with a time lag of over 60 years, we can even call his work historical, as he discovered a completely new research area in which thousands of other researches were later generated. Over time, a large number of different variables have been discovered that affect this natural phenomenon.

If you know nothing about this area, these 2 links are good to start with:

PRT is a Partial report task adapted to the limitations of the frontend Javascript development environment.

A relatively large number of variable options (about 20) allows you to customize the application to your needs.
