Berrini, Della Sala, Spinnler, Sterzi, and Vallar (1982) employed a recognition test to determine whether lateralizing the study or test phase of a memory task produced greater asymmetries. When the study phase was lateralized, verbal materials (meaningless and unpronounceable consonant pairs) were identified with greater accuracy following rvf/LH encoding, and nonverbal materials (stars positioned in a matrix) were recognized better following lvf/RH encoding. When stimuli were studied centrally and tested laterally, no VF asymmetries emerged for either material type.
