  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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 ...
  7. 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...
  8. A note on motor laterality in plains zebras (Equus burchellii) and impalas (Aepyceros melampus).

    Laterality 12(5):449 (2007) PMID 17712714

    This observational field study used intermittent still photography to examine the distribution of motor laterality in images of two African grazing quadruped species: plains zebras (Equus burchellii) and impalas (Aepyceros melampus). Zebra images (n=708) had a laterality index of -6.21 and a Z-s...
  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. Fixation and attention control in lateralised target detection and free recall with words.

    Laterality 12(5):428 (2007) PMID 17712713

    The purpose of the present study was to test the hypothesis that lateralised target detection in the visual modality would produce results similar in magnitude, reliability, and validity to those obtained in the auditory modality with an analogue task. Thus, it was expected that it would produce...
