Bilateral chimeric stimuli were projected tachistoscopically to split-brain patients for the purpose of assessing hemispheric asymmetries in color-naming, color-matching and memory for colors ofwell-known objects. There was a strong bias for naming colors ofstimuli projected to the left hemisphere, but some patients were also above chance in naming colors of stimuli projected to the right hemisphere. In color-matching tasks, patients varied in the direction and degree of asymmetric control of… CONTINUE READING
