|Title:||Origins of the Left and Right Brain||Contributor(s):||MacNeilage, Peter F (author); Rogers, Lesley (author); Vallortigara, Giorgio (author)||Publication Date:||2009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5486||Abstract:||The left hemisphere of the human brain controls language, arguably our greatest mental attribute. It also controls the remarkable dexterity of the human right hand. The right hemisphere is dominant in the control of, among other things, our sense of how objects interrelate in space. Forty years ago the broad scientific consensus held that, in addition to language, right-handedness and the specialization of just one side of the brain for processing spatial relations occur in humans alone. Other animals, it was thought, have no hemispheric specializations of any kind.||Publication Type:||Review||Source of Publication:||Scientific American, 301(1), p. 48-55||Publisher:||Scientific American, Inc||Place of Publication:||New York, United States of America||ISSN:||1946-7087
