The validity of Bowers and Heilman's hemispace hypothesis (Neuropsychologia 18, 491-498, 1980) that "laterality effects depend upon the spatial condition in which a stimulus is presented" was examined in two tactile bisection experiments (one with adults and the other with kindergarten children). Three indices: absolute error, constant error and directional error were employed to measure the accuracy of the two hands and hemispaces. The results did not support the hemispace hypothesis, though… CONTINUE READING
