Different organization of concepts and meaning systems in the two cerebral hemispheres

By Dahlia Zaidel

Abstract

The left and right hemispheres are asymmetrical with respect to specific cognitive abilities as well as organization of concepts and meaning systems. Several hemi-field experiments using the notion of typicality in different cognitive domains are described in this paper, as well as experiments which tap the notion of hemispheric-specific schemata. The results suggest that the 2 cerebral hemispheres can process the same external information but in ways which suggest asymmetry in concept and meaning organization
