Research Interests

Dr. Frommer is involved in research on hemispheric specialization, including studies that attempt to tease apart contributions of scanning and of differential hemispheric functioning. Current projects include studies of vernier discrimination and of short term memory for items presented tachistoscopically to the left and right visual fields.
