Lateral bias in theatre-seat choice.
Examples of behavioural asymmetries are common in the range of human behaviour; even when faced with a symmetrical environment people demonstrate reliable asymmetries in behaviours like gesturing, cradling, and even seating. One such asymmetry is the observation that participants tend to choose seat...
Hemispheric resource availability influences face perception: a multiple resource approach to social perception.
Two experiments tested the hypothesis that social perception recruits distinct limited-capacity processing resources that are distinguished by the cerebral hemispheres. To test this hypothesis, social perception efficiency was assessed after relevant hemispheric processing resources...
Lateral thinkers are not so laterally minded: hemispheric asymmetry, interaction, and creativity.
The biological basis of creativity remains a topic of contention. A long-held view suggests that whereas the left hemisphere is intelligent and analytic, the right hemisphere is the source of all creativity. Consequently, activating the right hemisphere should enhance creative thinki...

Sylvian fissure asymmetry in capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella)
We used high-resolution 3T MRI scans to investigate this asymmetry in 17 brown capuchin monkeys (Cebus apella; 9 males, 8 females). Results indicated a trend towards population-level leftward asymmetry in the lateral region of the SF. Post hoc analyses revealed significant sex differences in...
Escape behaviour elicited by a visual stimulus. A comparison between lateralised and non-lateralised female topminnows
We investigated whether non-lateralised fish differed from lateralised fish in escape behaviour elicited by a potentially dangerous stimulus. A total of 56 female topminnows were observed when swimming in an unknown environment in which the shape of a predator was presented on either the right or th...
Asymmetry of visually guided sexual behaviour in adult Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica).
Sexually active adult Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) were trained to run across either a left- or a right-turning runway to obtain sexual access to a conspecific of the opposite sex. The birds tested with only their right eye in use showed significantly higher latencies to complete the...
An X-linked three allele model of hand preference and hand posture for writing.
This paper describes a genetic model of hand preferences for writing and for handwriting posture (HWP). The challenge of devising an X-linked model for these aspects of human handedness was posed by the results of a large family handedness study (McKeever, 2000) that showed evidence of such linkage....
Footedness in peacocks: is the dominant foot the one raised first in climbing, and what, in any case, does the emperor's tale really mean?
Speech lateralisation in callosal agenesis assessed by the dichotic fused words test.
Child patients with left-hemisphere damage (n = 2), with total callosal agenesis (n = 2), and with partial callosal agenesis or hypotrophy (n = 3) were submitted to dichotic verbal stimulation by the Fused Words Test. The controls were nine normal children, right-, left-, and mixed-handed. As expect...
