Abstract

Four experiments analyzed the effects of lateralized affective prime stimuli (either faces or words) on judgements of the affective value of visually lateralized verbal target stimuli. Right visual field affective primes decreased the speed and accuracy of judgments of right visual field targets. Left visual field affective prime stimuli tended to increase the speed and accuracy of judgments of left visual field targets. There was also evidence for asymmetric priming effects where primes and targets were presented to different visual fields. The results supported a model of right hemisphere involvement in the processing of affective stimuli.
