Laterality effects in response to the offset of visual stimuli.

Abstract

In a study of simple reaction time to visual stimuli it was found that the offset (or termination) of stimuli presented in the right visual field elicits significantly later responses than does the offset of stimuli presented in the left visual field. No such difference was observed for the responses to stimulus onset. A similar effect has been reported for responses to tonal stimuli. The results do not support the view that hemispheric asymmetries arise at higher stages of information processing than those which mediate simple reaction time.
