dc.description.abstract A name identity task was used to assess the language processing abilities of the right hemisphere of the brain. Ten undergraduates participated in each of three experimental conditions; nouns presented below threshold, nouns presented above threshold and verbs presented above threshold. Significant priming effects occurred when a picture of a noun or verb was presented above threshold and followed by a word which named the picture. The priming effect for nouns presented below threshold was not significant. No hemispheric asymmetries were found for the recognition of nouns or verbs.
