This study attempts to exploit visual half field presentations of words in sentence contexts as an aid in the analysis of a cognitive function related to anaphoric processing. The function in question assimilates several kinds of information to resolve certain syntactic ambiguities. The experiments address the question whether all aspects of this linguistically complex function are supported by the language dominant left hemisphere. The evidence suggests that the anaphoric function is bihemispheric, i.e., that subfunctions supported by both hemispheres play a crucial role.
