Abstract

Left index fingers exhibited lower method of limits thresholds; however, signal detection revealed that some subjects were more sensitive on the right, others on the left, while others were equisensitive. For some individuals, lateralization occurs at a level of processing fundamental to both tasks, while for others lateralization varies as a function of tasks.
