Enhanced dual task performance following corpus commissurotomy in humans.

Abstract

A commissurotomy patient and two neurologically intact control observers were required to encode spatial patterns presented concurrently to the two hemifields. Under conditions of maximal perceptual load, in which different patterns appeared in the two fields, the commissurotomy patient encoded more information than the control observers. Based on these findings, it is concluded that competition for common internal processing mechanisms interferes with overall processing efficiency.
