A good Wikipedia discussion of the focus-metaphor approach to interface design ...

"The Focus-Metaphor approach combines aspects of design theory, cognition psychology and educational theory to create a more natural way of interaction. With the design of the Focus-Metaphor it was intended to achieve advancements over commonly used metaphors (e.g. desktop metaphor, portal metaphor) and counteract effects like “second visit blindness on websites” [10]. This approach uses the principle of cortical connectivity and its importance for cognitive functions [11] to apply them to the design of dynamic and adaptable user interfaces."   continued ...   (Via Wikipedia)
