  1. Auditory priming of frequency and temporal information: effects of lateralised presentation.

    Laterality 12(6):507 (2007) PMID 17852702 PMCID PMC2582062

    Asymmetric distribution of function between the cerebral hemispheres has been widely investigated in the auditory modality. The current approach borrows heavily from visual local-global research in an attempt to determine whether, as in vision, local-global auditory processing is lateralised. In...
  2. Laterality in coiling behaviour of snakes: another interpretation.

    Laterality 12(6):536 (2007) PMID 17852698

    The direction of coiling was periodically recorded for two species of viperid snakes--copperheads (Agkistrodon contortrix) and cottonmouths (Agkistrodon piscivorus). Overall, neither species showed a significant preference for coiling in a particular direction. Only 1 of 22 snakes exhibited an i...
  3. Hippocampal asymmetry in serotonergic modulation of learning and memory in rats.

    Laterality 12(6):475 (2007) PMID 17852699

    The modulation of learning and memory after left or right microinjections of the selective 5-HT1A receptor agonist 8-OH-DPAT and of the 5-HT1A receptor antagonist NAN190 into the hippocampal CA1 area of male Wistar rats was studied. Microinjections of 8-OH-DPAT (1 microg) into the right or left ...
  4. Hemispheric asymmetries in feature integration during visual word recognition.

    Laterality 12(6):543 (2007) PMID 17852697

    Although the definitive source of the left hemisphere's superiority for visual word recognition remains illusive, some argue that the left (LH) and right (RH) hemispheres engage different strategies during early perceptual processes involved in stimulus encoding. In particular, it is proposed th...
  5. The influence of musical experience on lateralisation of auditory processing.

    Laterality 12(6):487 (2007) PMID 17852700

    The influence of musical experience on free-recall dichotic listening to environmental sounds, two-tone sequences, and consonant-vowel (CV) syllables was investigated. A total of 60 healthy right-handed participants were divided into two groups according to their active musical competence ("musi...
  6. Handedness in Great Britain.

    Laterality 12(6):559 (2007) PMID 17852703

    Two large British databases of handedness assessed by writing hand at 10-11 years of age were analysed by geographical region. Left-handedness was found to vary significantly across regions according to one survey but not the other. In both data sets, left-handed writing was significantly more f...
  7. Does Irish-dance training influence lower-limb asymmetry?

    Laterality 12(6):500 (2007) PMID 17852704

    Irish-dance is a dance form where asymmetry is required. This study investigated the influence of Irish-dance training on four lower-limb asymmetries by comparing 100 Irish-dancers and 100 non-dancers. All four asymmetries showed significant differences between the dancers and the non-dancers: t...
  8. A note on asymmetric use of the forelimbs during feeding in the European green toad (Bufo viridis).

    Laterality 12(5):458 (2007) PMID 17712715

    European green toads (Bufo viridis) were tested for one-sided forelimb lateralisation during prey ingestion, i.e., when pushing food into the mouth. Results showed that toads preferentially used their left forelimb to help themselves in the ingestion of living larvae. It is argued that previous ...
  9. Asymmetry of flight and escape turning responses in horses.

    Laterality 12(5):464 (2007) PMID 17712716

    We investigated whether horses display greater reactivity to a novel stimulus presented in the left compared to the right monocular visual field, and whether a population bias exists for escape turning when the same stimulus was presented binocularly. Domestic horses (N=30) were tested on three ...
  10. Evolution of hemispheric specialisation of antagonistic systems of management of the body's energy resources.

    Laterality 12(5):397 (2007) PMID 17712712

    Excellent and rich reviews of lateralised behaviour in animals have recently been published indexing renewed interest in biological theorising about hemispheric specialisation and yielding rich theory. The present review proposes a new account of the evolution of hemispheric specialisation, a pr...
