Form-Specific Visual Priming in the Right Cerebral Hemisphere
0.00 (0 votes)
Results of 4 experiments indicate that both within-modality and case-specific visual priming for
words are greater when test stimuli are presented initially to the right cerebral hemisphere (RH).
In contrast, neither within-modality nor case-specific explicit memory for words is greater when
stimuli are presented initially to the RH. Priming is measured using word-stem completion, and
explicit memory is measured using word-stem cued recall. In both cases, Ss first rate how much
they like words, and then word stems are presented briefly to the RH (in the left visual field) or
to the left hemisphere (in the right visual field). Results suggest that at least 2 separate systems
encode the visual representations that produce priming. The system that is more effective in the
RH is better at representing form-specific information, whereas another system that is not more
effective in the RH does not distinguish among distinct instances of word forms.
While visual signals that accompany spoken language serve to augment the communicative message, the same visual ingredients form the substance of the linguistic system in sign languages. This article ...
