This chapter examines the roles of the right and left IMHV in the retention of a preference. Results show a hemispheric asymmetry in the roles of the right and left IMHV in the imprinting process. The left IMHV has a storage function and may itself be a store. Under special circumstances, the left and right IMHV may be removed, but the chick retains the previously acquired preference. Based on these data, the existence of another store is proposed, referred to as S'. The store appears to be formed slowly under the control of the IMHV, which may act as a buffer store.

Keywords:   IMHV, imprinting process, hemispheric asymmetry, brain, S', store, preference
