Bihemispheric representation, foveal splitting, and visual word recognition

Richard Shillcock, Padraic Monaghan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Pulvermüller’s account of lexical representation has implications for visual word recognition, given the claim we make that a foveally presented word is precisely split and contralaterally projected to the two hemispheres, and that this splitting conditions the whole process of visual word recognition. This elaboration of Pulvermüller’s account raises issues of hemispheric differences and collaboration.
