HEMISPHERIC DIFFERENCES IN THE EFFECT OF STIMULUS FAMILIARITY ON PERCEIVED DURATION

Summary:
A paired-comparisons procedure was used to obtain relative duration judgements of identical pairs of normal (e.g. A vs. A) or rotated (e.g.V vs.V) letters. Each pair of letters was presented simultaneously for a duration of 50msec, with one letter in the LVF (left visual field, right hemisphere), and one in the RVF (right visual field, left hemisphere). It was hypothesized that LVF presentations of rotated letters would have a greater apparent duration . This was based on Hock, Kronseder, and Corcoran's (1975) demonstration that rotated letters presented in the LVF produce longer reaction times than RVF presentations on a visual comparisons task. The results were that subjects' "left" vs. "right" responses did not differ significantly for any of the conditions. Methodological considerations were cited as a possible reason for the failure to confirm the present hypo thesis.
