But none of these studies has reported the by-subjects and by-items analyses—of sufficient statistical power—that would be required to test the most reasonable form of the direct route hypothesis, which is that the effect only occurs for some items, and perhaps is most discernible in only some subjects. Therefore, direct routes have been included as possibilities in Figure 2, but not as certainties. Backwards Connections One of the most controversial parts of the architecture of some proposed theories of naming (and of word retrieval in general) is whether there are backwards connections between the stages.

These generally appear to be more sketchy, more concrete, and less forceful (that is, activated more slowly and to a lower ultimate degree than the lexical semantic representations of the dominant hemisphere). Therefore, the nondominant hemisphere's contribution to lexical semantics and visual confrontation naming is often obscured by the left hemisphere's contribution, or only shows up as latency differences on lateralized naming (McKeever, Seitz, Krutsch, & Van Eys, 1995). It would rarely if ever be detectable after right brain injury, as is indeed the case (Glosser & Goodglass, 1991).

Submitted). 51 2. Models of Naming Asymptotic Activation Activity Time Figure 4 Activation function for a single unit, at a single level. (Figure ©1996 Intelligence Amplification, Inc. ) 5. If a node is "sufficiently" activated, it a. then reaches a "threshold" and then sends activation on to a subsequent stage (can broadcast to a subsequent stage); b. can inhibit all other nodes at that level (see the suggestion made for semantic-level nodes by Nickels and Howard (1994). c. may get additional activation added, as a bonus for reaching a certain level of activation (as Dell has suggested occurs at the lexical level).
