It evaluates the performance of healthy adult observers viewing displays presented to one or the other visual field. It tests observers who had their corpus callosums surgically sectioned, thereby preventing the normal neural communication that occurs between the hemispheres. In a series of experiments presented in the chapter, the two hemispheres show signs of being specialized for visual search based on particular kinds of visual attributes. The chapter considers whether each hemisphere is able to guide search...
