Unfortunately, previous work in the literature did not include tasks that allow us to sort out the contributions of the various subsystems, and hence new experimentation is required to test this theory. CONCLUSIONS Consider the task of someone observing dozens of displays like those in Fig. 4, and trying to induce a theory of the regularities underlying them. This would be a difficult exercise. Now consider the task of someone who observes measures of left- and right-hemisphere performance in a variety of tasks, and tries to induce the underlying regularities.

The first combination assumes that the left hemisphere controls speech output 90% of the time and the right hemisphere controls search patterns 90% of the time. However, the assumption that the right hemisphere is typically so specialized is not firmly established and thus we considered the case in which the left hemisphere simply is generally dominant, controlling both functions 90% of the time (the 90/10 case). Furthermore, as a baseline we considered the case in which each hemisphere controls both functions half the time (the 50/50 case).
