The characterization of the left and right cerebral hemispheres as analytic and holistic, respectively, was evaluated with callosotomy patients. This distinction was operationalized by reference to the work of Garner, Kemler Nelson, and their colleagues on separable (analytic) and integral (holistic) dimensions of cognition. In one experiment, patients were asked to make similarity judgments when faced with triads of stimuli such that one pair matched on a criterial attribute (analytic) and… CONTINUE READING
