Issues relating to cross-modal performance (CMP) are examined from various points of view, with major emphasis on phylogenetic comparisons and neurological mechanisms. Although it now seems likely that certain distinctions that were made based on training procedures (i.e., among transfer, matching, and recognition) have no functional significance, research… (More)
It is proposed that epileptic discharges could be the result of an autoimmune response to either an antigen released during tissue destruction or an infective agent. A possible mechanism involves the blocking by antibodies of transmitter receptor sites at synapses, whereby synaptic transmission is reduced.
Reasons are given for preferring the term "hand-ability" to "hand-preference", especially in animals, for discussions of HS. Different kinds of HS are described for man and for the monkey, with emphasis on the importance of the precise task to be performed for the determination of HS ("act-specific HS"). Exceptional kinds of HS in the monkey are reported.
Children aged 1.5 to 8 years were required to touch accurately an illuminated target lamp located on a vertical board. Movements were made when visual information was complete (target lit for 3 s, room illuminated; partial (target lit for 3 s, room dark, and reduced (target lit for 0.7 s, room dark). Dependent variables were response accuracy, reaction… (More)
It has been suggested that the condition associated with disease or injury of the brain in which ability to identify objects is impaired may in certain cases be regarded as a true failure of recognition. Such was the conclusion of Jackson (1876) when he reported a case of 'imperception', of Munk (1877) when he described 'mind blindness' in dogs, of Lissauer… (More)
