By Lesley J. Rogers,Richard Andrew

not seen as a attribute detailed to people, mind lateralization is taken into account a key estate of so much, if no longer all, vertebrates. This box of analysis presents an organization foundation from which to ascertain a few vital matters within the examine of mind and behavior. This booklet takes a comparative and integrative method of lateralization in quite a lot of vertebrate species, together with people. It highlights version platforms that experience proved precious in elucidating the functionality, motives, improvement, and evolution of lateralization. The publication is prepared in 4 elements, starting with the evolution of lateralization, relocating to its improvement, to its cognitive dimensions, and at last to its function in reminiscence. specialists in lateralization in decrease vertebrates, birds, non-primate mammals, and primates have contributed chapters during which they talk about their very own examine and look at its implications to people. The publication is appropriate for researchers, graduates and complicated undergraduates in psychology, neuroscience and the behavioral sciences.
