Journal List Genetics v. Stein – – Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 3: Spatial localization in left and right visual fields. The Canadian Student Journal of Anthropology 21 1: Left-handed Israelis or people from Arabic countries would be expected to show preference scores on the S slides which would be negatively correlated with L and R scores in the present investigation, if scanning is the main determinant of preference for levh.

The effect of sensory stimulation in one of the other sensory field, necessarily resulting in asymmetric activation of the contralateral cerebral hemisphere, almost always produces an orientation reflex toward the source of stimulation. Please review our privacy policy. David Poeppel – – Cognitive Science 25 5: Left-handers did not display any matching asymmetry, while right-handed Israelis showed the same asymmetry as right-handed North Americans.

Corballis – – Behavioral jerrr Brain Sciences 28 4: In the particular sample of pictures shown, it appears that preferred pictures by right-handers are those in which the more important content or the greater heaviness is on the viewer’s right.

When dextral preferences are very weak S slidesthere is a slight, but significant, perceived left asymmetry. Neither of these factors even approached significance for any of the four groups classified by handedness and sex, and subjects within each category were consequently combined across sessions.

There are two aspects of asymmetry which have been discussed by art historians and which, at least, offer the possibility of at,tack on the problem.


Critica, 28, It should be noted, however, that the mean score of Group SD Kulkarni – – Journal of Business Ethics 28 4: Dual functional asymmetry of the brain in visual perception. F o r 12 subjects the absolute value o f N o n – P was larger t h a n t h a t o lrvy P, for 5 subjects there was a zero difference a n d for levu subjects the absolute value o f N o n – P was smaller t h a n P.

Minor hemisphere dominance for certain visuospataial functions. Fifth, the degree of per- ceived asymmetry in P and Non-P slides should be equal when compared after the control slide baseline has been subtracted out, since, once this is done, psychological asymmetry is removed.

In one, average P, Non-P, and S asymmetry scores were determined for each subject, averaging over slides in each category, and in lfvy other, average asymmetry scores were determined for each slide, averaging over subjects.

Slides were projected through two duplicate Sawyer 2 x 2 in. Raquel and Ruben Gur for helping her to select the 97 slides used in this study from a total of almost Subjects were simply asked to view the 97 slide pairs and to choose the member of each pair that they preferred.

If the focus of importance or interest, or if these are equal on left and right, the greater heaviness, is on your left, check the column under LEFT and if on your right, the column under RIGHT. On the basis of this analysis, and of the negative-positive distributions of the groups Table 2it would seem that the overall difference between the two groups Table I is mainly attributable to the larger fraction of sinistrals who received negative scores, rather than to differences in the magnitudes of the positive and negative scores themselves.


In an attempt to gain a better understanding of the factors controlling preferences, further analyses were performed on the 14 P and Non-P slides and the 14 S slides separately.

Males and females within each handedness category were then compared, and for neither right-handers nor left-handers did they differ significantly, nor even ap- proach significance. The total variance in R.

Slide analysis Simple, partial, and multiple correlations were computed for the A, R, and L scores of the 28 slides. It should be noted that R and L scores were so assigned that any P slide shown in Study II should, on the average, have a positive R score, while any Non-P slide should, on the average, have a negative R score.

She has studied the relationship between the cerebral hemispheres and visual -oriented versus language -oriented tasks in split-brain surgery patients.

Psychobiological implications of bilateral asymmetry. Leevy Davies – – Research in Phenomenology 35 1: Thus, for any subject, a positive score indicated that his preference was similar to that for Group SD, a negative score indicated the opposite preference, and a score of zero indicated no relationship with the preferences of Group SD.

Apparently, however, the net preferences manifested, although weak, were, to the extent they were predictable, almost entirely due to the same factor which controlled sinistral preferences.
