Yerkes researchers discover baisis for determining handedness in chimpanzees
...an language brain region. A detailed review of the data
showed the asymmetries in the KNOB corresponded to right- and left-handedness whereas the asymmetries in the language area did not, leading the researchers to conclude handedness is linked explicitly to the KNOB and not other brain regions. In a sep...
