(p.47) 3 Semantic Asymmetries Must Originate in a Visual Asymmetry
The Neural Basis of Reading

Carol Whitney

Oxford University Press

This chapter shows how the many asymmetries that have been observed in half-field studies of visual word recognition must originate at a prelexical level. In particular, it uses the Sequential Encoding Regulated by Inputs to Oscillations within Letter units (SERIOL) model of orthographic encoding to explain how and why an asymmetry arises in the visual processing of letter strings.

Keywords:   half-field studies, word recognition, seriol model, orthographic processing, visual processing
