Abstract

Hemispheric specialization for linguistic functions was assessed by means of a dual-task (verbal-manual) paradigm and a dichotic listening test in 16 right-handed men after the administration of a moderate dose of ethyl alcohol. No statistical evidence supporting the hypothesis that moderate doses of alcohol affect motor or perceptive aspects of hemispheric specialization was found.
