Studies that investigate the relationship between postural control and hemispheric specialization
present conflicting results.
The news of hemispheric specialization
did not stay confined to the lab, but spread quickly throughout the culture.
a right-handed person probably has a left hemispheric mathematical specialization and a left-handed person a right brain hemispheric specialization
for music and artistic abilities [Knecht, 2000; Ira & Ehram, 2005]).
New information on memory and how technology affects the brain results in new educational approaches, and this surveys the latest findings, revises sections on hemispheric specialization
processes, and expands resources to link with this new research.
The switch to bipedalism and new habitat necessitated the banding of hominids into cooperative groups and increased selective pressure on learning and imitation, leading to changes in the hormonal balance of the sympathoadrenal system, increased period of post-natal development, and growing hemispheric specialization
But this probably has more to do with hemispheric specialization
and control of the contralateral hand than with divided consciousness.
Hierarchical stimuli have also been used to study the functional hemispheric specialization
for global and local processing.
Tsur does not base his analysis of individual differences on hemispheric specialization
The brains of children with developmental language impairment also don't appear to develop the normal asymmetry between the hemispheres, which suggests that normal hemispheric specialization
of functions including language doesn't occur.
An experiment was conducted to determine the extent to which hemispheric specialization
is manifested in the performance of tasks in which listeners are required to attend to one of several simultaneously spoken speech communications.
The other side of the brain II: Some educational aspects of hemispheric specialization
This system of transacting constraints and fluctuating degrees of freedom can be seen in the developmental relationship between prenatal sensori-motor experience, hemispheric specialization
, and behavioral asymmetries.
