WOLFFLIN had first suggested in in Paul Wolters Festschrift re- printed in  that there is a strong tendency herre scan a picture from left to right, the eye terminating its scan on the right half of the picture ejrre the most important content is represented. Find it on Scholar. Results were interpreted as reflecting a left field perceptual bias induced by selective right hemisphere activation in right handers.
She postulates that there is a certain fixed path, the “glance-curve,” which viewers follow lefy a picture space of three dimen- sions. Brain 95, Sadistic Cruelty and Unempathic Evil: It is planned to carry out a replication of the current study, using the same sets of slides, in Israel. The preference variances for left-handers L scoreshowever, did not differ F 1. The purpose of this selection was two-fold: Hypnotizability, laterality of eye movement and functional brain asymmetry.
No categories specified categorize this paper. What is not clear is just what this aspect is, or even whether it is suffici- ently simple that it can be defined. These scores R kevy L were computed as follows.
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. Though Gaffron hypothesizes that a certain fixed scan pattern compensates for an inherent right visual field bias induced by brain lateralization, knowledge gained over the last 35 yr regarding the specialized functions of the left and right hemispheres, proves beyond question that it is the left visual field for which a percep- tual bias exists.

Please study each slide carefully in order to determine its balance with respect to the left and right ley of the slide. When dextral preferences are very weak S slidesthere is a slight, but significant, perceived left asymmetry.

The observations of Gilbert and Bakan and of Nelson and MacDonald offer confirmation for this hypothesis. Skills 30, In Cerebral Hemisphere Relations, J.

Levh and Bakan found that the left half of a photograph of a face has a greater resemblance to the whole face than does the right half for right-handers.
She has studied the relationship between the cerebral hemispheres and visual -oriented versus language -oriented tasks in split-brain surgery patients. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.
Unfortunately, however, it is not only likely, but almost certain, that no understanding of how lateralization of the brain affects preference can be gained unless invariances in preferred and non-preferred pictures are found.
Balance is to be determined on the basis of two criteria: THERE ARE various references throughout the art history literature to the relationship between lateral orientation of a painting, tapestry, or etching and the aesthetic quality of a work of art .
Hand orientation in writing and correlated variations in cerebral and cognitive organization. Art Quarterly 13, Paula Tallal – – Behavioral and Brain Sciences 4 1: However, the deviations of both groups from random expectation were so small that the left- and right-handed groups did not differ from each other, and the interpretation of their findings remains in doubt.
Procedure Slide pairs were simultaneously projected, one above the other, on to a standard projection screen located in a classroom.
A Model for the Genetics of Handedness
Each subject’s total score was, then, the sum of scores for the 14 slide pairs. Secondly, the direction of asymmetry should be in opposite directions on P and Non-P slides. 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.

Minor hemisphere dominance for certain visuospataial functions. Slide analysis Simple, partial, and multiple correlations were computed for the A, R, and L scores of the 28 slides.
