Güntürkün -- Development of laterality and the role of the corpus callosum in rodents and humans / P.E. Cowell and V.H. Denenberg -- Posture and laterality in human and non-human primates: asymmetries in maternal handling and the infant's early motor asymmetries / E. Damerose and J. Vauclair -- Evidence for cerebral lateralization from senses other than vision / R.J. Andrew and J.A.S. Watkins -- Facing an obstacle: lateralization of object and spatial cognition / G. Vallortigara and L. Regolin -- Laterality of communicative behaviours in non-human primates: a critical analysis / W.D. Hopkins and S. Fernández Carriba -- Specialized processing of primate facial and vocal expressions: evidence for cerebral asymmetries / D.J. Weiss [and others] -- Memory and lateralized recall / A.N.B. Johnston and S.P.R. Rose -- Memory formation and brain lateralization / R.J. Andrew.
Summary: This is the first book to take a comparative approach to brain lateralization. It examines lower vertebrates, birds, nonprimate mammals, and primates, including humans, highlighting model systems that elucidate the function, causes, development, and evolution of lateralization. Topics include the evolution, development, and cognitive dimensions of lateralization, and its role in memory.
