      Ancient Origins articles related to brain lateralization in the sections of history, archaeology, human origins, unexplained, artifacts, ancient places and myths and legends. (Page of tag brain lateralization). The psychology and historiography of writing has generally received less attention than reading, speech and language acquisition. This book tries to redress that imbalance and is the fruit of the continual collaboration between a humanist and a neuroscientist who share an interest in the role of biology and brain-related factors in cultural evolution.

      Body + Brain Body & Brain Inside the Mind of a Left-Hander Left-handedness is much more than a trivial paw preference: It may be a useful lens through which to examine brain : Fatima Husain. This volume of Progress in Brain Research provides a synthetic source of information about state-of-the-art research that has important implications for the evolution of the brain and cognition in primates, including humans. This topic requires input from a variety of fields that are developing at an unprecedented pace: genetics, developmental neurobiology, comparative and functional.

    The Throwing Madonna Essays on the Brain The human brain is distinguished from the brains of the great apes by an extraordinary extent of lateralization of function. Language on the left, visual-spatial on the right is an easy-to-remember dichotomy which hardly does justice to the mosaic of lateralized functions, but does serve to remind us. Functional lateralization in the human brain was first identified in the classic observations by Broca in the 19th century. Only one hundred years later, however, research on this topic began anew, discovering that humans share brain lateralization not only with other mammals, but Brand: Springer Berlin Heidelberg.

The Lateralized Brain: The Neuroscience and Evolution of Hemispheric Asymmetries is an up-to-date teaching resource for neuroscience faculty members that teach courses concerning hemispheric asymmetries. The book provides students with all relevant information on the subject, while also giving aspiring researchers in the field an up-to-date.

The traditional explanations offered for lateralization of brain function (that it may avoid unnecessary duplication of neural circuitry and reduce interference between functions) cannot account for this fact, because increased individual efficiency is unrelated to the Cited by: Evolution and lateralization of the brain.

The evolution of brain lateralization: a game brain in which the left side dominates for function A, and the right side for func-tion B. According to the efficiency hypothesis, an (A,B) brain would be superior to an (AB,AB) brain, i.e.

a non-lateralized brain with both functions on both sides. This is the first book to take a comparative approach to lateralization in a wide range of vertebrate species, including humans.

It highlights model systems that have proved invaluable in elucidating the function, causes, development, and evolution of lateralization. The book examines the evolution of lateralization, its development, its Format: Hardcover.

Brain lateralization and the emergence of language. for right-hand motor control coincides with motor theories of language evolution. The fact that exceptions to this rule exist, such as. According to this view, the evolution of brain lateralization would have occurred in two steps: first, individuals became lateralized because of advantages from increased brain efficiency (e.g.

Brain function lateralization is evident in the phenomena of right- or left-handedness and of right or left ear preference, but a person’s preferred hand is not a clear indication of the location of brain function. Although 95% of righ-handed people have left-hemisphere dominance for language, % of left-handed people have right-hemisphere.

The two hemispheres are connected by the corpus callosum, a bundle of nerve fibers. The corpus callous allows the right and left hemispheres .Divided Brains: Fascinating Facts about Brain Asymmetries this book traces the evolution of lateralization of brain and behavior from the earliest vertebrates to humans.

I really enjoyed.Node Smith, ND The left and right side of our brain are specialized for some cognitive abilities. For example, in humans, language is processed predominantly in the left hemisphere, and the right hand is controlled by the motor cortex in the left hemisphere.

The functional lateralization is reflected by morphological asymmetry of the brain. Left [ ].
