Abstract:
In order to test one implicit assumption of a neuropsychological theory concerning Complex Partial Seizure Disorder and affective-behavioral change, an instrument has been developed. The Perception of Affect Task (PAT) was created to fill an unmet need for an instrument which could assess the perception of affective stimuli across six emotions and neutral by: (1) allowing for a comparative analysis of perceptual abilities relative to the various emotions; (2) allowing for a comparative analysis of verbal and nonverbal perceptual abilities, thereby allowing for a potential analysis of enhancements and/or deficits by hemispheric laterality; and (3) assessing perceived intensity ratings of affective stimuli. As the PAT is to evaluate, in an upcoming study, CPS patients' deviations from normal perception-of-affect abilities, the present study serves to standardize this instrument with a college student sample.
