Seizures were classified according to the revised International Classification of Epileptic Seizures as partial (simple or complex), generalized, or partial secondarily generalized. Performance on the Wechsler Intelligence subtests served to measure intellectual ability. Patients with(More)
Twenty right-handed male and female subjects were asked for ear-by-ear recall of dichotically presented consonant--vowel syllables. Stimuli within each dichotic pair were contrasted on the features on voicing and/or place, or were differentiated by manner of production. While listening to the stimuli, the subjects were required to concurrently reduce the(More)
Normal right-handed subjects were presented with luminance patterns varying from sinusoidally in both space and time to the left and right visual fields. With no temporal variation in the stimuli, detection thresholds for the left visual field were lower than those for the right visual field for all spatial frequencies. However, with increasing temporal(More)
In initial 60-min sessions, the dynamic visual acuity (DVA) of 54 male college observers was determined over a range of target velocities (60, 90, 120, and 150 deg/s) at each of three durations (200, 400, and 600 ms). Following four 30-min practice sessions with the task, a final test session identical to the first was then conducted. Highly significant(More)
