In this study lateral differences in tympanic membrane temperature (TMT) were explored as an index of cerebral lateralization. TMT posttask differences were examined for sustained attention to response tasks (SARTs) following the presentation of negative and neutral emotional picture stimuli. Right TMT changed significantly more from baseline TMT than did left TMT after participants performed SARTs, a finding consistent with previous research indicating right cerebral dominance for sustained… CONTINUE READING
