Dear All:

I am trying to locate published works that describe how network-like representations of ideas (say, causal / conceptual maps) better facilitate individual understanding and comprehension than other forms of knowledge representation (say, search lists). I've used Google, a variety of library search engines, and a variety of different strings, but have not found any work that is of direct relevance with empirical findings - just lots of suggestive evidence and tangential works. I suspect someone on this list may know of useful references.

Much thanks,
