Eleven percent of the world's population are left handed. What makes a person left handed? Is there anything else different about a left hander in their brain or personality? This book summarizes scientific studies on handedness, sorting the fact from fiction in commonly held beliefs about handedness, drawing from neuroscience and psychological studies. Readers will understand how handedness develops in the brain, how malleable it is, how different cultures treat left-handedness, and the extent to which handness is or is not associated with other differences in the brain and personality.
- Summarizes scientific research on laterality
