The ability of right- and left-handed men to identify two- and three- dimensional visual stimuli that have been rotated was measured. There was no correlation between the scores on tests with two- and three-dimensional stimuli. How accurately a two-dimensional submarine-target diagram could be identified after it had been rotated was not related to the initial orientation of the submarine, the initial relationship between the submarine and a target, or the degree to which the submarine was subsequently rotated it was, however, related to the degree to which the submarine-target relationship had been changed. Left- handers performed better than right-handers on the two-dimensional task, but there was no difference on the three-dimensional task.
