Particular thanks are due to his Chairman, Dr. Paul Satz, for whose many forms of assistance over the years, I can never adequately acknowledge. Special thanks are also due to Dr. Madelalne Raimey for assistance in the statistical analysis of the data. For the author, the most significant aspect of this study was that he was allowed to do his own "thing," with its unique rewards and pitfalls. For this I am truly grateful to my entire committee. I would also like to thank my parents, Mr. and Mrs. B. J, Schell of Las Cruces, New Mexico, for the wonderful support they have given me throughout the years. 11 TABLE OF CONTENTS PAGE ACKNOWLEDGMENTS 11 LIST OF TABLES iv LIST OF FIGURES v ABSTRACT vl INTRODUCTION 1 hflTHOD II RESULTS 14 DISCUSSION 20 SUMMARY 25 APPENDICES 1 STIMULUS AND ERROR TYPES EXAMPLE 27 2 SUMMARY ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE 28 B IBLIOGRAPHY 29 B lOGRAPH ICAL SKETCH 31 LIST OF TABLES PAGE TABLE 1 hEAN CORRECT RECALL BY VISUAL FIELDS AND FAMILIAL HANDEDNESS... 16 Iv LIST OF FIGURES PAGE FIGURE 1 DISTRIBUTION OF ERROR TYPES 17 FIGURE 2 PERCENT ERROR TYPES BY VISUAL FIELD 18 FIGURE 3 FAMILIAL HANDEDNESS BY ERROR TYPES 19 Abstract of Dissertation Presented to the Graduate Council of the University of Florida in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy NONLANGUAGE CEREBRAL MECHANISMS IN A VISUAL FIELD TASK By Bruce J.
