Lateral Eye Movement and Cogitation in Junior High School Students.
Lauria, Mark W.; Wichman, Harvey
In a between-subject experimental design, 31 randomly selected junior high school students demonstrated lateral eye movement (LEM) immediately following the administration of each question in a group of questions, designed to alternately activate either the left or the right cerebral hemisphere. Because the subjects showed consistency in their lateral eye movement during a questioning period, it can be concluded that the type of question posed did not have any significant influence on the direction of this movement. Furthermore, 70% of the female subjects displayed lateral eye movement in a particular direction, thus providing data which contradicted previous research findings which have indicated that adult female subjects are inconsistent in their lateral eye movement when asked a reflective question.
