No differences were seen in performance on either verbosequential or visuospatial neuropsychological tests among three groups of women. There were also no differences among the phases of the menstrual cycle on any of the tests. The design of this study was to sample performance of women on verbosequential and visuospatial neuropsychological tests during(More)
Male and female adolescents who qualified for a DSM-III-R diagnosis of Alcohol Abuse or Dependence and a control sample of nonalcohol-abusing male and female adolescents were administered a battery of intellectual, achievement, and neuropsychologic tests.

Right ear superiority was found for two groups of 24 subjects on a dichotic listening test of melodies each differing only in rhythm. In addition, no ear difference was found in the same two groups for a dichotic melodies test differing only in pitch or pitch pattern. Finally, the usual left ear superiority was seen for dichotic presentation of chords and(More)
Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) levels were negatively correlated with visuospatial function in two successive testing sessions in 32 young adult men. Men with high concentrations of FSH performed poorly on three-dimensional tests and tests of point localization. Men with low concentrations tended to perform better. Luteinizing Hormone (LH) tended to(More)
This study evaluated the performance of hearing-impaired adolescents on tests of specialized cognitive functioning and explored the linkage between cognitive profile and reading achievement. Other variables noted were mathematics achievement, speech production, etiology, and age of onset of hearing loss. Subjects were 62 severely-to-profoundly(More)

Left-ear superiority for perception of dichotically presented musical chords was seen in musicians at all levels of competence. However, a hypothesis that dominance would be greater in the more professional musicians was not confirmed. Whereas many of the professionals did have the largest left-ear preferences, about half had strong right-ear superiorities(More)
It has long been believed that stress and drug abuse are related. Studies using animal models have repeatedly demonstrated that stressed animals more readily self-administer alcohol or other drugs. Similarly, human patients consistently report in clinical interviews that stress is one reason for taking drugs. There are also studies that document(More)
Hemispheric lateralization of singing was investigated in patients who had transient hemiplegia after intracarotid injection of sodium amylobarbitone. It was found that after right carotid injection singing was markedly deficient, whereas speech remained relatively intact. Songs were sung in a monotone, devoid of correct pitch rendering; rhythm was much(More)
