Abstract
The Bilateral Cooperative model of human reading is introduced. Two process streams interact at a few discrete points. One stream, primarily represented in the right brain hemisphere, performs at each stage is rapid approximate pattern-match which results in several alternative interpretations of the data; the other, in the left hemisphere, performs a rule-based (syntactic) analysis which produces a unique result if it can. The possibilities developed by the approximate pattern-match can be used to assist the analysis procedure (top-down), whereas the unique result derived from the analysis can inhibit all other possibilities developed from the pattern match. At each stage, the resulting data become input for the next stage of both processes. Evidence from experiments with normal subjects and patients with brain lesions is presented to support the model.
