Experiment Performance under a test sentence with an unnegated consequent was compared with that under a negated consequent. ’ The four cards which accompany each test sentence have the following general form: The specified letter (L+); the specified number (N+); an unspecified letter (L-); and an unspecified number (N-).

Role of structural and cognitive factors is discussed. hidden Introduction Kimura (1961) has found that when different verbal stimuli are presented simultaneously to the two ears of subjects with left hemispheric dominance, the material presented to the right ear is better recalled than that presented to the left ear. The reverse effect was found for a small group of subjects with right hemispheric dominance. Subsequent work, controlling for order of report and biases of voluntary attention (Bryden, 1963; Myers, 1970; Gerber and Goldman, 1971), or using a single syllable pair for identification (Shankweiler and Studdert-Kennedy, 1967), showed that this asymmetry is a true perceptual asymmetry.
