Rollman, Steven A.; Harrison, Robert D.
American Annals of the Deaf, v141 n1 p37-41 Mar 1996
This investigation with 122 college students, including 45 deaf students, found that neither deaf nor hearing students demonstrated a statistically significant advantage in accuracy or recall of nonverbal information about people in photographs. Deaf subjects, however, were more than twice as likely as hearing subjects to base their judgments upon hand and arm behavior. (DB)
