Hemispheric activation and interaction: Past activity affects future performance

Cherbuin, Nicolas; Brinkman, Cobie


Previous studies have shown that when hemispheric activation is modulated by a lateralised task performed concurrently with a second task, performance in the second task is affected by the side of the more active hemisphere. This effect is thought to be produced by competition for limited resources required to complete the two tasks and/or by a greater allocation of attention to the hemifield contralateral to the more active hemisphere. Little is known on how task performance is affected by the...[Show more]
