Neuropsychologia is an international interdisciplinary journal of the neurological, behavioural and cognitive sciences. It is devoted to promoting the study and understanding of human and animal behaviour and cognition from a neuroscientific perspective, and to integrating experimental, clinical, and theoretical contributions within its field. Published monthly, Neuropsychologia also presents papers focusing on the analysis of disorders of perception, action, intelligence, memory imagery, thought and language resulting from injury or disease of the central nervous system. Special issues have dealt with issues such as methods in neuropsychology, selective visual attention, memory, developmental plasticity and recovery of function and the neuropsychology of animal learning. General reviews of neuropsychological topics of major current interest are also published.

ABSTRACT: When male chicks have to choose whether to orient by distant or proximal cues, chicks using the left eye (and so the right hemisphere) orient far better and make more use of distant cues than do right-eyed chicks. When both eyes are in use, left eye systems are mainly responsible for orientation, whereas right eye systems may concentrate on identifying food. Brief bias towards control of behaviour by the right eye system on day 8 allows it temporarily to be used successfully by the chick for orientation; apparently interference from the left eye system is reduced at this time.Neuropsychologia 02/2013; 27(7):937-948.

ABSTRACT: The Theory of Visual Attention (TVA; Bundesen, 1990) allows one to measure distinct visual attention parameters, such as the temporal threshold for visual perception, visual processing capacity, and visual short-term memory (VSTM) capacity. It has long been assumed that visual processing capacity and VSTM capacity parameters are nearly constant from trial to trial. However, Dyrholm, Kyllingsbæk, Espeseth, and Bundesen, (2011) found evidence of considerable trial-by-trial variability of VSTM capacity. Here we show that one cause of trial-by-trial variation is that some parameters depend on whether processing of relevant information occurs in only one hemifield or in both hemifields. Our results show that VSTM and visual processing capacities are higher when stimuli are distributed across the hemifields rather than located in the same hemifield. This corresponds to previous suggestions that parallel processing is more efficient across hemifields than within a single hemifield because both hemispheres are involved (e.g., Alvarez & Cavanagh, 2005; Kraft et al., 2005). We argue that the established view of a fixed visual attentional capacity must be relativized by taking hemifield distribution into account.Neuropsychologia 02/2013;
