Description:
Research on asymmetry in a broad range of species, including humans, is presented in the chapters of this book. The various contributions report on and discuss behavioural lateralization, asymmetries in sensory receptors and neural organisation and the role of genes, hormones and environmental factors in the expression of lateralization. The likely advantages or disadvantages of having brain asymmetry are addressed in some chapters.
