    A simple method by which the relative performance of the two cerebral hemispheres, and cooperation between the hemispheres, may be assessed in a clinical setting is discussed. The apparatus, which allows the findings of neuropsychological investigations of hemisphere performance in the normal and split-brain subject to be applied in the clinic, is described, together with the results of a preliminary trial and some clinical results.
