Abstract

Six yr old black and white subjects from low and middle socioeconomic classes (SEC) were presented a dichotic listening task composed of syllale pairs. All groups evidenced a significant right ear advantage (REA) at recall. The magnitude of the REA did not differ as a function of race or SEC. This outcome suggests that earlier results, which indicated smaller REA's for low SEC subjects, may have been due to a 'floor effect' resulting from task difficulty and motivational variables.
