In a tachistoscopic visual search task, the effects of ipsi- and contralateral distractors on target search were investigated in two complete commissurotomy patients. Pop-out distractors slowed the search for contralateral targets in both patients, i.e. search was not independent in both hemifields. In normals, we previously observed an extinction-like asymmetry in that distractors in the right visual hemifield interfered with target search in the left visual hemifield, but not vice versa.
