dc.description.abstractThis study investigated the effects of interference from a center stimulus on the recognition of faces presented in each visual half-field using the tachistoscoptic presentation. Based on prior studies, it was hypothesized that faces would be recognized nnre accurately based on outline features when presented to the Left visual field - Right hemisphere and on inner features for the Right visual field - Left hemisphere. It was also hypothesized that digits presented at center fixation would interfere most with the recognition of the inner details of faces presented to the right hemisphere, since recognizing both faces and digits requires high-frequency spectral analysis (Sergent, 1982b).Each stimulus was cinposed of either a number or a blank at center fixation and a face placed either to the left or right of fixation. The results indicated no performance differences due to the visual field of presentation. Recognition was most accurate when no center stimulus was present, and recognition of outer details was more accurate than recognition of inner details. Subjects tended to use top-to--bottan processing for faces in both visual fields.
