  1. Lateral bias in theatre-seat choice.

    Laterality 19(1):1 (2014) PMID 23387932

    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...

  3. Strength of lateralisation for processing facial emotion in relation to autistic traits in individuals without autism.

    Laterality 17(4):438 (2012) PMID 21452096

    A great number of studies have shown that non-clinical individuals rely predominantly on the right hemisphere to process facial emotion. Previous studies have shown that males suffering from Asperger's syndrome show a typical right hemisphere bias for processing facial emotion (happiness and sadness...
  4. Lateralised covert attention in word identification.

    Laterality 14(2):178 (2009) PMID 18777245

    We investigated whether such advantage involves lateralised covert attention, in the absence of overt fixations on prime words. In a lexical decision task target words were preceded by an identical or an unrelated prime word. Eye movements were monitored. In Experiment 1 lateralised (to the left or...
  5. Stability of motor lateralisation in maturing dogs.

    Laterality 13(5):468 (2008) PMID 18686162

    Previous studies of motor laterality in dogs have produced some conflicting results, with inconsistencies in lateral biases across sexes, over time, and across tasks. The current study modified published food-retrieval and tape-removal tests before applying them to 43 dogs. It showed that results de...
  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 frequ...
  7. Evolution of hemispheric specialisation of antagonistic systems of management of the body's energy resources.

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

    I show that autonomic, immune, psychomotor, motivational, perceptual, and memory systems are similarly and coherently specialised in the brain hemispheres in rodents and man. This energy resource management model, extended to human neuropsychology, is termed here the "psychic tonus" model of hemisph...
  8. Laterality of horses associated with emotionality in novel situations.

    Laterality 11(4):355 (2006) PMID 16754236

    We have established that lateral biases are characteristic of visual behaviour in 65 horses. Two breeds, Trotters and French Saddlebreds aged 2 to 3, were tested on a novel object test. The main finding was a significant correlation between emotionality index and the eye preferred to view the novel...
  9. Right hemispheric dysfunction in schizophrenia.

    Laterality 10(1):29 (2005) PMID 15841821

    This study uses the Poffenberger (1912) paradigm, which compares the difference between "crossed" (stimuli and motor response areas are contralateral) and "uncrossed" (stimuli and motor response areas are ipsilateral) conditions to estimate interhemispheric transfer time. Simple reaction time (RT) w...
  10. Does brain white matter growth expand the cortex like a balloon? Hypothesis and consequences.

    Laterality 10(1):81 (2005) PMID 15841825

    Horrobin (2001) has proposed that phospholipid metabolism is linked to human brain growth, and that deviations in the metabolism may be linked to creativity as well as mental disorders. The present literature review leads to a framework or model which states that brain white matter growth causes the...
