Patients with unilateral cerebral excisions and control subjects performed two tasks in which target words had to be guessed on the basis of either phonemic or semantic partial-information clues. Each cumulatively provided clue was assigned successively lower point-value, these points being risked whenever the subject responded. Patients with frontal-lobe excisions chose to make a guess after seeing only one clue more often than did a combined group of subjects without frontal-lobe damage, but… Expand
