In previous research we have shown that hierarchically complex overlapping concepts have a higher error rate of errors versus control concepts. In this poster we show an exmaple from Neoplasm concepts of the NCI thesaurus (NCIt) demonstrating that erroneous overplapping concepts, reflected in the partial-area units of a partial-area taxonomy, display visual complexity. Furthermore, correcting these erroneous concepts causes visual simplification.
