Abstract

The process of inferencing involves not only generation, but also selection and maintenance of inferences. The current study examined generation and maintenance of predictive inferences in adults with right hemisphere brain damage (RHD) and healthy older adults without brain damage (NBD). Results from the NBD group suggest that these individuals were able to both generate predictive inferences and maintain them over time. Data from the small contingent of adults with RHD tested to date indicate that some individuals may be slow to generate inferences, although the majority can maintain them over time.
