Hemispheric specialization has been studied extensively within subfields ranging from perception to language comprehension. However, the study of asymmetries for basic memory functions--an area that holds promise for bridging these low- and high-level cognitive domains--has been sporadic at best. We examined each hemisphere's tendency to retain verbal information over time, using a continuous recognition memory task with lateralized study items and central test probes. We found that the… CONTINUE READING
