Prior time-course investigations of cerebral asymmetries in word processing have sometimes reported hemisphere differences in the onset and duration of semantic priming. In the current study, very strongly related word pairs (categorical associates such as arm-leg) were employed in a low relatedness proportion lexical decision priming paradigm. A range of(More)
To support categorical representation in the brain for grammatical class, it is necessary to show that noun-verb differences are attributable to parts of speech and not to covarying semantic factors. Prior visual-half field investigations of noun-verb processing have confounded grammatical class with imageability. The current study included numerous tests(More)
It has been claimed that the typical RVF/LH advantage for word recognition is reduced or eliminated for imageable, as compared to nonimageable, nouns. To determine whether such word-class effects vary depending on the stimulus list context in which the words are presented, we varied the proportion of high- and low-image words presented in a lateralized(More)
