Predictive Inferencing in Adults With Right Hemisphere Brain Damage
- Inference Generation During Text Comprehension by Adults With Right Hemisphere Brain Damage: Activation Failure Versus Multiple Activation. Tompkins, Connie A.; Fassbinder, Wiltrud; Blake, Margaret Lehman; Baumgaertner, Annette; Jayaram, Nandini // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Dec2004, Vol. 47 Issue 6, p1380
Evidence conflicts as to whether adults with right hemisphere brain damage (RHD) generate inferences during text comprehension. M. Beeman (1993) reported that adults with RHD fail to activate the lexical-semantic bases of routine bridging inferences, which are necessary for comprehension. But...
- Inferencing Processes After Right Hemisphere Brain Damage: Maintenance of Inferences. Blake, Margaret Lehman // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Apr2009, Vol. 52 Issue 2, p359
Purpose: This study was designed to replicate and extend a previous study of inferencing in which some adults with right hemisphere damage (RHD) generated but did not maintain predictive inferences over time (M. Lehman-Blake & C. Tompkins, 2001). Two hypotheses were tested: (a) inferences were...
- Inferencing Processes After Right Hemisphere Brain Damage: Effects of Contextual Bias. Blake, Margaret Lehman // Journal of Speech, Language & Hearing Research;Apr2009, Vol. 52 Issue 2, p373
Purpose: Comprehension deficits associated with right hemisphere brain damage (RHD) have been attributed to an inability to use context, but there is little direct evidence to support the claim. This study evaluated the effect of varying contextual bias on predictive inferencing by adults with...
- The rule of adjunction and reasonable inference. Kyberg Jr., Henry E. // Journal of Philosophy;Mar1997, Vol. 94 Issue 3, p109
Discusses the rule of adjunction and reasonable inferences. Possibility of objection to a valid rule of inference; Semantic justification of the rule of adjunction; Weight of skepticism against adjunction; Arguments in connection with the possible inconsistencies of our bodies; Motivation for...
- Inference of crystal properties from cluster magnitudes. Francisco, E.; Recio, J. M.; Martín Pendás, A. // Journal of Chemical Physics;7/1/1995, Vol. 103 Issue 1, p432
Using ab initio pairwise potentials, we have minimized the total energy of cubelike neutral clusters of NaCl containing from eight up to eight thousand ions. Different size coordinates have been used to describe the progressive emergence of the crystalline behavior of the lattice parameter,...
- Effects of task on the activation of predictive inferences. Waring, Douglas A.; Kluttz, Christy L. // Psychological Reports;Dec98 Part 2, Vol. 83 Issue 3, p1287
Focuses on whether the type of test for explicit memory would affect the activation of knowledge-based predictive inferences. Variation of the type of question asked after reading of the passage for accomplishment of manipulation; Issue of whether predictive inferences are activated during...
- Crane on concepts and experiential content. McFarland, Duncan // Analysis;Jan1998, Vol. 58 Issue 1, p54
Discusses the content of perceptual experience. Characterization of conceptual content; Types on inferences that would directly involve perception; Elements of propositions required in the inferential relationship between propositions.
- Abstracts of recent literature. Edelstein, Joan // Journal of Rehabilitation Research & Development;Oct96, Vol. 33 Issue 4, p434
Presents an abstract of the article `Making Inferences in Research,' by M.E. Raney, reprinted from the periodical `Journal of Prosthetics and Orthotics' dated 1996.
