Findings support previous research which showed that attention to the self is increased with relative left hemisphere activation while attention to external stimuli is enhanced during a relative right hemisphere pattern of activation.

Mixed-handed persons are more easily persuaded and are more gullible: Interhemispheric interaction and belief updating

In Experiment 1 mixed- handers exhibited higher levels of persuasion in a standard attitude-change paradigm, while in Experiment 2 mixed-handers exhibitedHigher levels of gullibility as measured by the Barnum Effect.

The authors discuss the potential theoretical basis and empiric support for a specific right-hemisphere role in delusion production, drawing on its roles in pragmatic communication; perceptual integration; attentional surveillance and anomaly/novelty detection; and belief updating.

A Neuropsychological Dimension for Anchoring Effects

Previous research has shown that strength of handedness predicts differences in sensory illusions, Stroop interference, episodic memory, and beliefs about body image and the origin of species. Recent

Toward a model to explain infant preferences by cerebral emotional asymmetry and hemisphere priming.

This paper argues that the rightward preference observed in most infants can be described as the consequence of two characteristics of the human brain: (1) hemispheric asymmetry of processes



Cognitive and Affective Response As A Function of Relative Hemispheric Involvement

We sought to determine the cognitive and affective reaction to a communicative stimulus as a function of relative hemispheric involvement, and to examine by inference the internal composition of

Individual differences in relative hemispheric alpha abundance and cognitive responses to persuasive communications.

Three experiments are reported investigating individual differences in interhemispheric electroencephalogram (EEG) activity and cognitive responses to persuasion, supporting the expectation that as subjects thought longer about attitude issues they exhibited a shifting of relative hemispheric EEG activity from the left toward the right parietal areas of the cerebral hemispheres.

Self-directed attention, awareness of bodily states, and suggestibility.

Two studies tested the hypothesis that self-directed attention would cause increased awareness of internal states and would thus reduce suggestibility effects and the perception of taste, and found subjects high in private self-consciousness were less affected by this expectancy manipulation and more accurate in reporting their actual internal state.

Hemispheric Changes in Information Processing During Development

Hemispheric processing of visually presented words and pictures was examined in three groups of subjects with mean ages of 8 years 8 months, 12 years 3 months, and 27 years 9 months. Pictorial or

Cerebral hemispheres and selective attention.

Differential effects of left versus right monaural biofeedback for heart rate increase.

Cerebral lateralization in the voluntary increase of heart rate was investigated in a biofeedback experiment involving 20 right-handed female subjects randomly assigned to one of two groups: right or

Speed of speech and persuasion.

The relationship between speaking rate and attitude change was investigated in two field experiments. Manipulations of speech rate were crossed with (a) credibility of the speaker and (b) complexity
