I remember hearing about an algorithm to calculate some property of each pixel of an image which represents how noticeable that pixel is to a human, and so how likely they are to notice if that pixel was modified. I seem to remember the word sounded similar to the word "latency". Any ideas?

What you are looking for is saliency and in the context of computer vision/image processing saliency maps provide a measure of this on a per-pixel basis.
