Subject: Student Organization of Linguistics in Europe

CONSOLE 6 - Call for Papers

The sixth meeting of the Student Organization of Linguistics in Europe
(ConSOLE) will be held at the University of Lisbon from 15 until 17
December.

SOLE aims at providing students of Generative Linguistics with a
possibility of gaining international experience and a publication
forum of their own. Furthermore SOLE strives at enhancing contacts
and cooperation between students of Generative Linguistics in Europe
and around the world.

Papers are solicited in the field of generative linguistics, more
specifically in, but not limited to, phonology, morphology, semantics,
sign language, language acquisition and syntax. Please send 4
anonymous (plus one with your name, affiliation, address and e-mail
address) copies of an abstract of maximally two pages, including
references, diagrams and examples using at least a 10-point font to:

	Portugal

The deadline for submission is 1 August, 1997. Abstracts received after 
August the 1st will not be considered.
Abstracts can only be submitted by regular mail.

 # The 8th International Conference on Cognitive #

 # December 1, 2, 3, and 4, 1997 #
 ########################################################

The International Conference on the Cognitive Aspects of Asian Languages,
which has been held every two or three years since 1978, has offered the
opportunity to exchange research outcomes mainly in language sciences.
The ICCPAL for 1997 aims to call attention to wider fields of researchers
who are interested in language and human information processing systems.

In various research fields, such as computer technology, neuroscience,
psychology, and linguistics, the idea that the human being can be regarded
as an information processing system has been broadly accepted. However, the
direction of research development differs in varying degrees depending on
the research fields. One of the most plausible reasons why research
directions differ is the variety of research background which have been
cultivated historically. These varieties of research developments and
fractionized research methods in each research field seem to prevent
fruitful exchanges of mutual research results in modern times.

The present symposium is designed to arouse the mutual exchange of research
findings by researchers who are interested in human information processing of
language. In this symposium, the primary focus is Kanji (Chinese Characters),
which is used by most Asian people. Therefore, researchers in wide fields of
research, from Kanji processing mechanisms in the brain to inter-human
communication, will be allowed mutual fruitful exchanges of scientific ideas.
All participants are expected to get ideas from a broader perspective which
will facilitate better understanding of the human being as an information
processing system.

SEX DIFFERENCES IN COGNITIVE TASKS OF VERBAL AND SPATIAL INFORMATION

Hatta June and Kogure Terry

Nagoya University

Japan


Sex difference in hemisphere specialization was examined using the Hatta type
tasks where both verbal and spatial codes are equally involved and available.
In Experiment 1, female and male students were given a low-demanding task.
These stimuli were presented in either the left or the right visual field
tachistoscopically. The results showed that females were generally better
in two response indices (correct identification of both numbers and their
locations, and identification of numbers). No visual field difference was
shown in either group of subjects. In Experiment 2, subjects were given a
high-demanding task. The results showed that females were better in correct
identification of both numbers and their locations, and in identification of
numbers, while no difference was shown in the identification of locations.
Males showed a tendency to right visual field advantage; however females
showed no visual field difference. Based upon these findings, hemisphere
function of sex difference and the validity of previously proposed laterality
models to explain sex difference, were examined.

Type of presentation: Poster
