Two experiments demonstrated the utility of a new procedure for generation of interference to color-naming. In this procedure, separate word and color stimuli are presented to the right and left of fixation. Whereas incongruent names delayed color-naming, congruent combinations of words and colors produced a facilitation of color-naming relative to a control condition in which Xs were presented opposite the color. A tendency for the color red to show interference only with words presented to the right visual field and hence to the dominant hemisphere suggests potential of this procedure for study of functional differences between the hemispheres.
