Abstract

The representation of associative codes in the cerebral hemisphere was investigated in two priming experiments where associated prime and target words were independently projected to the left or right visual fields. The first experiment, using a stimulus onset asynchrony of 250 msec, found priming in all visual field conditions, except that in which both prime and target were projected to the right hemisphere. A second experiment was conducted to determine whether this absence of right hemisphere priming was due to an inadequate interval of time between prime and target. In this experiment, a stimulus onset asynchrony of 450 msec revealed significant priming in all visual field conditions. The results suggest that lexical representations are activated more slowly in the right hemisphere than in the left.
