We examined normal university students to determine whether individual differences in mood and arousal levels would be related to performance on a spatial memory task. Right-hemisphere specialization for this spatial memory task was confirmed by a left field advantage for the targets and this field asymmetry was enhanced as task difficulty was increased… CONTINUE READING
