Leiber, L. & Noonan, M. Classification of random forms and
distortions presented to the left or right visual field.
Perceptual & Motor Skills, 1978, 47, 615-621.
right-handed undergraduate men were taught in free vision to
categorize distortions of prototypic random forms and were then
tested in a Go/No Go task with lateralized tachistoscopic
presentations of previously sorted (old) distortions, new
distortions, the prototypes, and unrelated forms. Accuracy of
performance on positive items increased in the order New < Old <
Prototype. More false alarms occurred to unrelated items in the
right than in the left visual field, suggesting that the trace
systems generated during training had different characteristics in
the two hemispheres.
